Creative Pentatonics

Essential Soloing Concepts for Guitar Made Easy

   Watch Promo

Learning to improvise over chords is tough, I know I've been there.

There are countless scales, modes, arpeggios, and more that you feel pressured to learn even before you play a single solo.


What if I told you that you can create memorable solos with only the pentatonic scale?


What if I said you can solo over m7b5, 7alt, maj7, and more chords with only this one scale?

You might not totally believe me, but I'm here to tell you it's all 100% true.

This is the benefit and beauty of diving deep into the pentatonic scale.

It's easy to play, sounds good, and you can solo with it over every chord under the sun.

All of these add up to a huge win in the practice room.

And you learn all of this, and more, in the Creative Pentatonics video course.

To celebrate our first video release, we've packed double the material into 1 course.

Doesn't get better than that!

"I Like the step by step approach and love the fact that there are so many backing tracks in different keys and tempos. That helps me to consolidate understanding and reduces my normal urge to do an exercise once or twice and then dash onto the next thing. I know the course will be very beneficial. Most importantly I think this is going to be fun."

Work on each chapter for at least 1 week. When you feel comfortable with the material, it's not perfect but you're doing well, you can move on to the next chapter. If you don't feel ready after 1 month on a chapter, move forward anyway and see how you do with that new material.

No, not at all. The material is presented over jazz chords and songs, but you can apply this material to any genre. If you enjoy soloing in different styles, such as blues, rock, funk, fusion, soul, metal, etc., then this material can be used in your playing.
I've never soloed before, is this course for me?
Yes, absolutely! Each chapter contains technical exercises, then you move on to soloing exercises when ready, and finally bonus exercises to take things a step further. You can start by working the technical exercises in each chapter, then when you're ready start to explore the improvising exercises in your practice routine.
Can I slow down the video examples?
Yes! You can slow down any video to get a closer look at technique and to play along at a more comfortable tempo.
