This Minor Pentatonic scale sounds quite ‘bluesy’ compared to the Major Pent. You can switch between these 2 scales as the track progresses, depending on what chord you are playing over. These 2 scales alone will give you plenty to work with.
You can even get into using Modes over this progression, but for now I suggest stick to these 2 scales. If you would like to learn how to play all 12 notes over this progression (in fact any progression), check out the unique Mojo Blues Guitar System. It even teaches you not so obvious ‘hidden notes’ to play. A great ‘Blues Secret’ that. Plus it applies to ANY style – powerful.
