Guitar Tricks 100: Diatonic Notes

In this channel episode Christopher Schlegel is taking over. Christopher's lesson is of the week is about adding diatonic notes to the pentatonic box. Use the pentatonic box to visualize your position & pattern, but use notes inside the box to add variety.

The tip of the week is to play a low bass note in between licks. This makes your playing sound more musical by providing a harmonic foundation for licks.
