Skip the Tonic!

One way of pushing your guitar playing outside of the pentatonic box is to create a chord progression that does not use the tonic chord.

For example, if you want to play in C major, you might use a progression that goes 2, 5, 6, and 4. What that's going to do is keep you from hanging out around that tonic note and actually encourage you to play the changes.
