In order to learn how to solo and improvise in blues and rock you must know the 5 pentatonic scale shapes. A lot of blues players tend to get stuck in the first pentatonic scale shape, but to be truly free and improvise across the entire fretboard you need to know all the shapes. And it’s not just about that. Every shape gives it’s own sound and feeling to a guitar lick. This is where the magic happens.
