C Minor Pentatonic Exercises and Riffs (4:48)

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.
