    I have a serious question: Does playing the guitar get you guys laid a lot?
    I’ve been working out and tanning like crazy forever. I started playing the
    guitar about a year ago and I’m pretty good but I still never get any.
    What the hell am I doing wrong?

  • James Salyers 2 years ago

    A bunch of new players ! Lol. Ok. Look it does not matter how u finger the
    scales at all. Period. If your fast enough u can use first and second
    fingers. Like django did. Do what is best for you. There is no right or
    wrong guys. The scales can be moved to any key. The point of the scales is
    to play over the cord changes.

    Why is it that we must know these five shapes?

  • Raul Mejia 2 years ago

    You should at least mention that it’s the minor pentatonic scale…

  • Luddited 2 years ago

    When you say, “You must know”, can I still learn the guitar without knowing
    and playing the 5 pentatonic scale ? There is no way in a million years I
    can learn or play what you are doing, so all I want to hear is, yes you can
    play guitar without knowing the pentatonic scale.

    Ok, so I’ve learn those now…but what do you do with them?

    Is this the pentatonic scales shapes for Am, right? What about the other
    scales? The shapes are similar?

    Thanks …excellent teacher….good camera work I could see clearly each
    finger on each fret…on so many of these teaching videos the angle is such
    that I can’t see where the guitarist is placing his/her fingers…nice,Dave
    69 yrs old and working on the first guitar solo for Maggie May…

  • Mike Squires 2 years ago

    Is this a major or minor pentatonic scale?

  • Chris Kelly 2 years ago

    I’ve just started playing guitar complete newbie I’ve been drumming for
    about 20 years, I can strum riffs but it’s finger work like this I need to
    get under my belt any advice on good sounding easy exercises?? Good video

  • Dennis Nakashima 2 years ago

    nice lesson.

  • John Lifsey 2 years ago

    Don’t get me wrong…I like this video. It has taught me a lot but there is
    an error in the shape number 4. It starts correct at 6:30. Watch closely.
    It’s played 12-15, 12-15, 12-14,12-14, 13-15,12-15. He plays it correctly
    until 7:19 when he inadvertantly tells you to play the14th fret of the 5th
    (A) string. I had written it down and when playing it knew something didn’t
    sound right. Besides that, its a great learning tool.

  • Alex Rodrigues 2 years ago

    can hear your strings buzzing my guitar does it to annoy me a bit…

  • Dana Whitfield 2 years ago

    I hope this isn’t stupid but when do you know to change shape? is it driven
    by the key or is it just feel? I see the shape 1 used all over the neck in
    many keys but what drives changing to another shape? Newbie sorry

  • gmonkey808 2 years ago

    so what can you do once you have learned these?

  • Mohith Raju 2 years ago

    Are all the 5 shapes Am pentatonic???

  • nihits 2 years ago

    Please mention in the description that there is an error at 7:19 in your
    shape 5 “Third finger on the A string 14th fret”. it should be “Fourth
    finger on the A string 15th fret” instead. It may confuse many people.

    things like that?
