Building the Minor pentatonic scale for guitar (easy)

This diagram shows how the minor pentatonic scale is built. This may be the most frequently referenced scale in all of rock and blues, and if it is not, it is very, very close to the top. The minor pentatonic scale is formed by dropping the 2nd (B) and 6th (F) tone of the minor scale. The A minor scale consists of the A, B, C, D,E,F, and G tones. The A minor pentatonic scale uses the A, C,D,E, and G tones. This leaves 5 notes in the scale, hence the pentatonic reference. Like all of the other scales presented, you should learn this and learn it well. Aw, mom.
