Box 1 Pattern & Picking

Throughout this tutorial we'll use two specific patterns to play each of the 5 pentatonic boxes.

The first pattern is straight up & down the scale box shape. We'll do this in a swinging rhythm of eighth note triplets. This gives us a way to play the pattern in a musical context.

The second pattern is a sequence of 3's, up then down the scale. We'll do this in eight note triplets. This requires a little bit more complex picking!

I'll do each exercise at 80BPM, then a little faster at 120BPM. This will give you a great workout for your fingers and ears!

In this lesson we'll start right in with the 1st pentatonic box!
