pentatonic minor scale realaudio stream 3
key of e minor

this file contains the following chord progression:
em  g/f#  g        d        bm
am        bm       c    d   em

to get the most out of playing these progressions, save the files and play them over and over, trying different modes and patterns over them. you will begin to understand what sounds good over what chords and what notes to hit when. but it won't come overnight; you need to practice!!! enjoy this, use it, and keep playin' !
