Pentatonic: A string


Here is a pentatonic scale starting on the A string. If you use the yellow note as your starting point (on your index finger) it is a minor pentatonic scale. If you start on the orange note (on your pinky) it is a major pentatonic scale. You can slide this pattern up and down the fretboard to change key.
