    Hi there! I post my video lessons on a couple of sites and just ran across this forum (and saw a couple of familiar faces!), so I thought I'd drop a couple here and see if you guys are into it...

    Pentatonic Phrase Building:

    CAGED Root System:

    http://premierguitarlessons.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=44&Itemid=28

    I usually post new lessons on my blog at http://blog.markwein.com. I just opened up an archive site at http://www.premierguitarlessons.com because the blog was getting too unwieldy to search for older lessons.

    If you dig them let me know, and I'll post when the new ones are up. I do a new one pretty much every week.....

    Pretty cool. I like the phrase lesson. Good for beginners and geezers like myself who need to step back, slow down and "listen".

    Thanks! I still need to remind myself to "take a breath" every once in a while when I solo....

    Thanks Mark, this is great. This has created a better understanding of what I have been playing, now I understand why.

    Excellent lesson on the limited pentatonic. I always tell myself to play this way, but still tend to throw too much in to "fill space." Funny how we can override what we know to be right.

    Thanks!

    I find myself being more "vocal" with the pentatonic...I have to work harder to make sense with the diatonic scales....many times I end up using the pentatonic scale that lurks within most of the modes as my "phrases that make sense" framework and I'll add the other two scale tones to flesh out the modes as "color" notes...
