Guitar Theory - The Minor Pentatonic Scale on E-A-D strings

Published March 13, 2021 48 Views

Rumble In this exercise, we listen to the root note and all 5 notes of the minor Pentatonic

This scale is movable up and down the strings, so practice these maneuvers on every fret.

Try doing this scale every way possible. For example, use just one finger to do the entire scale, and then use the next finger, and so on...

This scale consists of the root note (1), the minor 3rd (3) perfect 4th (4) perfect 5th (5) minor 7 (7) octave (8)

1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8

From 1 to m3 is 3 half steps on same string.

From m3 to p4 is 2 half steps on adjacent strings, but looks like M2 shape

From p4 to p5 is 2 half steps on same string.

From p5 to m7 is 3 half steps across adjacent strings, and looks like m3 shape.

From m7 to 8 is 2 half steps on same string.
