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.

I used to play as a kid...........forgot about 90% of what I knew. I took lessons from a guy who was a lead , and lead singer in a country band. He is still playen today...

It is on my short list to pick up a guitar and learn again
