In this lesson we'll look at the middle 4 measures of our 12 bar blues. This will be measures 5-8.

This time we've got a C7 chord played in quarter notes for 1 measure. Then, we'll switch to playing another single note melody using notes from the G minor pentatonic scale. But this time we'll use notes from the next pentatonic box further up the fretboard, the 2nd box pattern.

Next, we return to the C7 chord for 1 measure, then switch to another series of notes from the G minor pentatonic scale, this time the 3rd box pattern. Repeat these 4 measures over & again to get good practice at switching between rhythm & lead playing.

Remember also that we will practice playing the notes in an ascending pattern.
