The pentatonic scale is an integral part of being a musician, especially a guitarist. It’s a must have aspect when playing music from many different cultures, especially our Western Popular, Rock, Blues, Jazz, Funk, and Country styles.

This course describes a method for transcending typical guitar scales. I’ve taught thousands of guitar lessons in my lifetime and a very common struggle for beginner to intermediate players is memorizing scale shapes. One of the main advantages of the Diagonal Pentatonic Method is the ability to move fluidly between positions and octaves, maintaining similar looking and feeling shapes.

Presented here is a simple and expandable method for learning the major and minor pentatonic scales across the entire guitar neck. This complete course features step-by-step instruction, neck diagrams for major and minor pentatonics across the neck, and a music theory primer teaching key concepts for understanding.

“Daniel’s Diagonal Pentatonic Method has totally opened up my appreciation for and use of the entire fret board. It is remarkable that by knowing this simple pattern, I can easily recognize how to move around in a scale, improvise more easily, and overall become a much better guitarist and musician.”

— Pete S., Wake Forest Professor

“Few people possess the ability to perform at a master level yet have the patience and talent to teach. Daniel not only helps me build repertoire but instills an understanding of music theory and how to put it to practical use. His approach is motivational yet challenging. I look forward to my session each week.”

— L. Jernigan

“As studied and talented a musician as Daniel is, and that is considerably studied and talented, beyond that, he has a beautifully natural and intuitive gift for teaching”

— Rob S, Retired Educator

"Daniel Seriff is one of my favorite musicians and a terrific guitar teacher. I am a Finnish musician and guitar teacher, still very much interested in developing my musical skills. I really appreciate Daniel’s work on the diagonal pentatonic method.

Daniel explains his concept in a crystal clear way in the videos. His use of technology to deliver the learning points, is spot on. Daniel's concept is a visionary and useful approach to breaking out of the use of stationary so called pentatonic boxes - a traditional approach that has led as many guitarists to get stuck as it has helped others advance.

All of the exercises are relevant and useful, and the backing tracks are damn sweet - stuff that you will go back to many times after the course. This is a great course that will help both players and teachers alike. Highly recommended!"

— Jukka Packalen, Musician - Helsinki, Finland
