Hello and welcome to this week’s harmonica lesson, where I will be showing you how to improvise using the major pentatonic scale over a 12 bar blues. We will be paying particularly close attention to which notes from the scale to target over each particular chord. This is the last of a little series of lessons on the major pentatonic scale; you can find links to the others at the bottom of this page.
You will need a harmonica in the key of C, and we will be playing in 2nd position in the key of G major.
Here is a backing track for you to practice playing along to.
