Earlier we moved the major pattern up 3 frets as a shortcut to the minor sound. Now that we are playing in minor, let's check out what it sounds like if we move this minor lick down three frets to get back to the major sound. This sound is called major pentatonic, and it's also extremely common in rock soloing.
