Two Simple Ways to Break Out of Penatonic Box One lesson65"> lesson65 In this lesson, we'll take a look at two very useful pathways to move out of pentatonic pattern box 1 and into the two adjacent patterns. We all know and love box 1 as our home bass and there's good reason for that. There are so many great licks straight out of this compact and comfortable 'box pattern' on the neck. Chuck Berry lick anyone? The issue becomes that we are so comfortable in this box position, that we struggle to venture out of the nest. This lesson will walk you through a couple of ways to connect box 1 to other patterns. Specifically, we can move up through box 1 and into box 2. As an alternative for some lower register notes, we can shift down into pattern 5 from pattern 1. Grab the TAB for this lesson here: lesson65"> lesson65 At the end of this lesson, you should know how to connect boxes 1, 2 and 5 into one flowing scale that stretches 10 frets which is nothing to sneeze at. This is great coverage on the neck, especially for fingerpickers like me who normally play above the 12th fret. Think about it, you'll have 10 out of 12 frets covered with this approach. Not too shabby. Check out this video and head to and pick up the TAB for this lesson to learn each note of this one: lesson65"> lesson65 Have fun and keep picking! ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Subscribe to this Channel Make Sure You Get Every One of the Tuesday Blues Lessons ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Blues Guitar Institute: Facebook: ================================================ Join Blues Guitar Institute to Get Each Lesson TAB tips65 ================================================
