Here's a quick little lesson on note-skipping across scales to make them sound like complex, rich arpeggios. Subscribe for more!
Yeah, the results aren't quite as magical when using the pentatonic; it mostly just sounds like fourths stacked on top of each other with the odd major third. But someone made a comment on the video suggesting using it with the harmonic minor scale, and it sounds pretty awesome. I've tried it with other jazz scales such as the altered scale (superlocrian) and the results sound absolutely bizarre in the best possible sense!The pentatonic scale becomes all strings barred at one fret if you start on the root and skip every second note.
