QuickStart Chord Progressions, Pentatonic Play-along Tracks

Four premium practice play-along tracks for mastering and exploring the Blues scale. Suitable for any instrument.

The Pentatonic or Major Pentatonic Scale

The Pentatonic scale is also referred to as the Country or Nashville scale. Eric Clapton has been very successful in weaving the bright pentatonic sound with the dark blues sound creating an unmistakable sound.

The Pentatonic scale consists of the following intervals (based on a major scale). Root, 2, 3, 5, 6 and octave. A common chromatic passing tone can be played between the 2nd and 3rd of the scale.

The following chord progressions are in the key of A major. The A Pentatonic scale consisting of the notes A B (C) C# E F# A’ can be used to solo over each progression.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee
