Supercharge your pentatonic solos with the six-note major hexatonic scale

by GuitarDomain

Last time, we looked at one of the most essential scales for improvisation, major pentatonic. Pentatonic means “five-tone,” and spelled intervallically, the scale degrees are 1 (root), 2, 3, 5, 6.

In the key of E, that would be E, F# , G# , B, C# , and in the key of A, the notes are A, B, C# , E, F#. Every well-known and influential guitarist of the last 100 years in virtually every style of music has utilized major and minor pentatonic scales, moving seamlessly between them while soloing. I encourage everyone to learn both scales in every key and in every position of the fretboard.
