Lesson 1: Pentatonic Shapes

Before we dive into each lick, it is important to learn, or refresh, the pentatonic shapes we will be using for this solo. This is a gentle start to the course, so we’ll only need the first and second pentatonic positions in the key of B minor. These shapes are outlined here. Remember to pay close attention to where those root notes are (look out for the “B” on the diagrams).
