The Brown’stone: Unlock Your Fretboard Using Pentatonics

This week here in The Brown’stone on No Treble, we’re taking an in-depth look at everyone’s favorite scale: the Pentatonic scale. We’ll get familiar with the different Pentatonic shapes created on the fretboard, and I’ll show you how you can open up the entire fretboard using these simple shapes.

I think you’re going to enjoy this one.
