Hi, Iím Martin Butler. Welcome to the Learning Annexís Learn to Play Guitar section. Iím going to tell you a few things about rock guitar.
Itís basically derived from the blues and the most common scale thatís used is the pentatonic minor scale. Penta, meaning five, tonic: tone, five note scale - five notes, you hear that in most rock songs. That sort of sound, thatís a pentatonic minor scale.
When you also here something a little sweeter, like a country kind of sound, thatís usually the pentatonic major scale Ė slightly different. Like that.
So popular music combines both scales, sweet and sour, rock and country, thatís all you need to know to get started.
