The 5 positions of the A minor / C Major pentatonic scale
Since the pentatonic scale contains 5 notes, you can play it from 5 different positions, learn those patterns and your fretboard knowledge will gain significantly.
Remember that after the 5 position / pattern , the sequence will start over an octave above
Looking at the minor pentatonic scale with the root A as in this example from the lowest note E on the 4 string bass, we get
4th position E (open string)
5th position G (3rd fret)
1st position A (5th fret, root position, in the video i start here)
2nd position C (8th fret)
3rd position D (10th fret)
4th position (E, 12th fret)
5th position (G, 15th fret)
1st position (A, 17th fret)
and then i run out of fretboard on a standard 4 stringer.
And if we look at it as the C Major pentatonic scale
3rd position E (open string)
4th position G (3rd fret)
5th position A (5th fret)
1st position C (8th fret, root position)
2nd position D (10th fret)
3rd position (E, 12th fret)
4th position (G, 15th fret)
5th position (A, 17th fret)
