Frank Gambale has become widely known as a jazz fusion guitarist, and even more known for his sweeping scales. I came across a lesson that Gambale teaches about using alternate fingerings for pentatonic sweeping scales that I think you’ll find quite useful. Master guitarists such as Frank Gambale have spent a lot of time memorizing the fretboard of the guitar so that they have several options to choose from when playing the same notes. This will come in handy for all guitarists and should help their versatility and proficiency on the guitar. The lesson below uses the blues as an example for pentatonic sweeping scales; providing alternate fingerings useful for guitarists of all skill levels. I hope you enjoy the video as much as I did!

I encourage all guitarists, including myself, to take the time to work on understanding the fretboard of the guitar all the way up and down the neck.
