The minor pentatonic scale is one of the most widely used scales in rock music.
The minor pentatonic scale is the natural minor scale but with the 2nd and 6th notes omitted.
The Major Scale is also known as the Ionian Mode.
The Natural Minor Scale is also known as the Aeolian Mode.
Probably the most popular progression in modern music. This progression can be heard in Whitesnake's Here I Go Again, Led Zeppelin's Rock and Roll and the favourite song of every beginner guitarist The Troggs' Wild Thing.
In the key of G Major
To avoid playing the A string in the big G5 power chord, lightly touch your thumb on the A string to mute it. This allows you to strike all of the strings without sounding the A.
You can play the two-fingered power chords using fingers 1 and 4, or fingers 1 and 3, whichever is the most comfortable for you. Notice the slight bend on a note in the last bar.
