About the Major Pentatonic Scale
The major pentatonic scale is a five-note scale derived from the major scale. This scale includes the following degrees from the major scale: 1 2 3 5 6. The scale patterns for both the major and minor pentatonic scales are the same. A major petantonic scale can be transformed into the minor pentatonic by moving the pattern up the neck three frets. For example, an A major pentatonic scale becomes A minor pentatonic simply by moving the same pattern three frets higher.
