MIXING MINOR AND MAJOR PENTATONIC.
Some solos use a mixture of minor and major
pentatonic.
One use is when both minor and major sound fine
for the solo. This is very common in blues songs.
So for the solo you can use any of your minor
scales and boxes as well as any of the major
scales and boxes.
These diagrams show how you can mix up minor
fingering pattern 1 with major fingering pattern
2 – both right on top of the E shape scale. Look
at the example of You Shook Me All Night Long
by AC/DC.
