How To Use The Major/Minor Scale With Your Pentatonics
So.. you’ve got your pentatonic scale down, and you know all the 5 shapes, but when you hear your favourite players you can hear extra notes- chances are they are incorporating the major or minor scale into their playing. In this lesson Mike shows you how to incorporate this scale into your playing, so that you can go from sounding like an amateur to a pro in no time!

How to use the Modes
The Modes certainly have an air of mystery around them, and at first can be a little bit daunting. In this lesson Mike shows you how to use the modes in a musical setting so that it doesn’t just sound like you’re running up and down scales.
