SC02 Major pentatonic scale from the 5th

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites YouTube Preview Image

Im playing over an AMaj7 chord, but using an E major pentatonic scale – ie playing a major pentatonic scale from the 5th (E) of the A major scale. This gives a more hip modern sound – not playing the root (A) and emphasizing the Maj7th, 6 th and 9th – E major pentatonic scale (E F# G# B C#) translates to the (Key of A) 5th, Major 6th, Major 7th, 9th and Major 3rd.
