Learning to play guitar. Should I learn all the pentatonic scales first instead of the major scales?
Ive been told that most riffs are pentatonic scales. Would learning all the major scales first take up my time before I can recognize and play riffs?
The pentatonic scale is easier to learn because 2 notes are left out of the major scale for each octave. Also, don’t learn all the major or pentatonics scales all at once. It will become a mind numbing chore and no fun. Learn a scale in a key of a song you like and play along with the song. This reinforces the scale and then you can move out from there.
