Last time, we kicked off this series of Brewtality columns by going over some basic, but essential, stuff and learning how to play the A minor pentatonic scale (A C D E G) all over the neck. We did this by learning the five fretboard patterns shown in FIGURE 1.
In this classic entry from his "Brewtality" column, Zakk Wylde shows you some essential minor-pentatonic runs. To kick things off, let’s start with some basics by looking at the minor-pentatonic scale and how it covers the whole neck. To keep things simple, we’ll stay in the key of A minor for now.
