13. The 3 Hotspots

Below you’ll see tab for all 5 pentatonic shapes.You’ll notice some notes in patterns 1, 2 and 5 are displayed in red. These are your pentatonic ‘hotspots.’

Spend some time improvising with each of the 3 hotspots. Start using just one hotspot, and jam with it over your backing tracks. Then try the next hotspot for a while, before attempting the final hotspot.

Once you’ve had some fun with that, try mixing the 3 together.

One final tip: The notes shown in the square brackets eg. [7] are the root notes of the scale. If you’re playing in the key of A, the root note will be an A note. If you’re playing in D, the root note will be a D etc.

When you’re improvising, try finishing your licks, on the root note. You’ll notice it feels like ‘home.’ Feel free to let this note ring out a little to give your solo some space, and room to breathe, kind of like the period at end of a sentence. 

Always remember, don’t expect too much of yourself right out of the gate. Keep up the practice, and over time good things will happen.
