Continuing our journey through the mesmerising world of the minor pentatonic scale, Simply Guitar presents the playthrough exercise for its second position. This segment, when played in quavers, offers a fresh perspective, ascending and descending through the notes.

Tips for Mastering the Second Position:

  1. Variation is Key: While the foundational concept remains consistent with the first position, the second position introduces varied finger placements. Embrace the change!
  2. Stay Rhythmic: Maintain the rhythm with quavers, ensuring each note holds its space and resonates beautifully.
  3. Practice Transitions: Moving from the first to the second position (and vice versa) will greatly improve fluidity in playing solos and riffs.
