Guitar players

I am taking guitar lessons and really into it. I am getting pretty good on the chords and can "play" La Bamba, kind of. But I can not get a handle on playing the Pentatonic Scale. I have looked on You Tube and the videos are so unclear that I can not figure it out. Any suggestions? Please don't suggest that I take ballroom dancing or accordion lessons as I am not French or Polish.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

Re: Guitar players

Well, I played a long time ago.
Never heard of that thing!
Just ignore it and keep learning.

Re: Guitar players

Have you tried this website?

http://guitar.about.com/od/specificl...tonicscale.htm


That teaches you both major and minor pentatonic scales.

The key is practice practice practice.
