Final Thoughts

C Minor Pentatonic Exercises and Riffs (4:48) Page 6 + Bonus PDF in all 12 keys

The C minor Pentatonic scale is a great scale to become fluent on – because you can use it without fear of sounding bad in some of the upcoming songs!

I like to think of the pentatonic scale as a “starter drum set” – you can drum away on it all you want and without much thought… it will always sound pretty good. It’s a great basis for improvisation.

These exercises will give you some ways to move around the instrument while improvising.

BONUS! I’ve added an extra PDF with Pentatonic and Blues scale exercises in all 12 keys! Go get it in the main download section of the course.
