Hello and welcome to this week’s harmonica lesson, where I will be introducing you to the major pentatonic scale. I will also be showing you some licks using it. This scale is a little different from the blues scale, which is based on the minor pentatonic scale. It can still be used to play some tasty blues though.
You will need a harmonica in the key of A, and we will be playing in 2nd position in the key of E major.

Here are some recordings of me playing each lick for you to hear what they should sound like.
Here is a backing track for you to practice playing along to.
