Nice - I love Nick's videos. Very accessible yet hip.

I do like his videos but in this case I wonder why he calls it the minor pentatonic. For instance playing the A minor pentatonic over the F major chord.

My teacher taught something similar. We would start with the F (major) pentatonic over the F major chord. Then we would explore the sounds of the two next nearest major pentatonics, namely C and Bb major pentatonic.

C major pentatonic has the same notes as the A minor pentatonic and would seem a more natural way of thinking about this than dealing with minor pentatonics.
