When you are playing lead guitar, adding the Major 3rd to the Minor Pentatonic is a cool thing to do. It works great over Dominant 7 Chords, and it gives you more options to work with. Instead of having only 5 notes (from the Pentatonic), you now have 6 notes to work with.

This lesson assumes you are already somewhat familiar with the Minor Pentatonic Scale.
