MIXING MINOR AND MAJOR PENTATONIC
Often you will have to use a combination of minor
and major pentatonic in the one song. A good
example would be using minor pentatonic for
minor chords and major pentatonic for major
chords.
We’ll practice on the example of A and Bm. For A
the obvious choice is A major pentatonic and the
obvious choice for Bm is B minor pentatonic.
