Using the C major scale as the foundation for all scales. Now learn how to alter the C major scale to create the C Minor Pentatonic Scale. The diagram below is for guitar but the note relationship or distances remains the same for all instruments.
Memorize and play the C Minor Pentatonic Scale. 

ALL scales repeat the same pattern up and down in tone. C major scale: C, D, E, F, G, A, B and C. Numbers are given to correspond to the major scale degrees or positions.

C Major Scale: C=1/Root, D=2nd, E=3rd, F=4th, G=5th, A=6th, B=7th, C=8th/octave. 

C Minor Pentatonic Scale: C=1/Root, Eb=b3nd, F=4th, G=5th, Bb=b7th.

Memorize the C Minor Pentatonic Scale note names and number formula.
C Minor Pentatonic - note names= C, Eb, F, G, Bb, and C    

C Minor Pentatonic - number formula= 1/R, b3rd, 4th, 5th, b7th, and root/8. 

C, Eb, F, G, Bb, C

1, b3, 4, 5, b7, 8/1.   

Using the note name chart below - play the C minor pentatonic scale starting from low thick E string 1st fret up neck, then back down neck. Repeat this same process for each string. Remember to say note names out loud as you play each note up and then down in tone. Repeat this process for all 6 strings: Low E, then A, D, G, B and thin E string. The underlined fret number indicates dot positions: 

open   1        3,      5,        7,      9,           12,          15,      17     19,    21,       24

Now play and say out loud the C minor pentatonic scale for each note up and back each string. Play the C note twice ascending and descending to memorize root note positions.


F, G, Bb, C, Eb, F - F, Eb, C, Bb, G, F, 

this is C Minor Pentatonic Scale starting on the F note on the low thick E string.


Bb, C, Eb, F, G, Bb - Bb, G, F, Eb, C, Bb 

this is C Minor Pentatonic Scale starting on the Bb to Bb octave on the A string.

 

Eb, F, G, Bb, C, Eb - Eb, C, Bb, F, Eb,

this is C Minor Pentatonic Scale starting on Eb to Eb octave on the D string.

 

G, Bb, C, Eb, F, G - G, F, Eb, C, Bb, G 

this is C Minor Pentatonic Scale starting on G to G octave on the G string.

 

C, Eb, F, G, Bb, C - C, Bb, G, F, Eb, C, 

this is C Minor Pentatonic Scale starting on the C to C octave on the B string.

 

F, G, Bb, C, Eb, F - F, Eb, C, Bb, G, F, 

this is C Minor Pentatonic Scale starting on the F note on the high thin E string.


The note to note intervals are the same. This applies to any string, octave, position, instrument or Key. Repeat this same process for bass, piano and any other instrument.

Using the C major scale as the foundation for all scales. Now learn how to alter the C major scale to create the C Major Pentatonic Scale. I will refer to it as the C Ionian Pentatonic Scale. The diagram below is for guitar but the note relationship or distances remains the same for all instruments.
Memorize and play the C Ionian Pentatonic Scale. Just omit the F or fourth and the B or seventh scale notes. Also called the tritone.

ALL scales repeat the same pattern up and down in tone. C major scale: C, D, E, F, G, A, B and C. Numbers are given to correspond to the major scale degrees or positions.

C Major Scale: C=1/Root, D=2nd, E=3rd, F=4th, G=5th, A=6th, B=7th, C=8th/octave. 

C Ionian Pentatonic Scale: C=1/Root, D=2nd, E=3rd, G=5th, A=6th.

Memorize the C Ionian Pentatonic Scale note names and number formula.
C Ionian Pentatonic - note names= C, D, E, F, G, A, and C    

C Ionian Pentatonic - number formula = 1/R, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, and root/8. 

C, D, E, G, A, C 

1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8/1.   

Using the note name chart below - play the C ionian pentatonic scale starting from low thick E string 1st fret up neck, then back down neck. Repeat this same process for each string. Remember to say note names out loud as you play each note up and then down in tone. Repeat this process for all 6 strings: Low E, then A, D, G, B and thin E string. The underlined fret number indicates dot positions: 

open   1        3,      5,        7,      9,           12,          15,     17     19,    21,       24

Now play and say out loud the C ionian pentatonic scale for each note up and back each string. Play the C note twice ascending and descending to memorize root note positions.


E, G, A, C, D, E - E, D, C, A, G, E 

this is C Ionian Pentatonic Scale starting on the low thick E string E to E octave.


A, C, D, E, G, A - A, G, E, D, C, A 

this is C Ionian Pentatonic Scale starting on A to A octave.

 

D, E, G, A, C, D - D, C, A, G, E, D 

this is C Ionian Pentatonic Scale starting on D to D octave.

 

G, A, B, C, D, E, F, G - G, F, E, D, C, B, A, G 

this is C Ionian Pentatonic Scale starting on G to G octave.

 

(B) C, D, E, G, A, C - C,  A, G, E, D, C, 

this is C Ionian Pentatonic Scale starting on the B string first fret to C octave 13th fret.

 

E, G, A, C, D, E - E, D, C, A, G, E 

this is C Ionian Pentatonic Scale starting on the high thin E string E to E octave.


The note to note intervals are the same. This applies to any string, octave, position, instrument or Key. Repeat this same process for bass, piano and any other instrument.

Using the C major scale as the foundation for all scales. Now learn how to alter the C major scale to create the C Natural Minor Scale. The diagram below is for guitar but the note relationship or distances remains the same for all instruments.
The Natural Minor Scale is also called the Relative Minor or Aeolian Minor or just Aeolian Scale.
In music theory many times the same thing has two or more names.

Memorize and play the C Natural Minor Scale. Just flat the E or third and the A or sixth and the B or seventh.

ALL scales repeat the same pattern up and down in tone. C major scale: C, D, E, F, G, A, B and C. Numbers are given to correspond to the major scale degrees or positions.

C Major Scale: C=1/Root, D=2nd, E=3rd, F=4th, G=5th, A=6th, B=7th, C=8th/octave. 

C Natural Minor Scale: C=1/Root, D=2nd, Eb=b3rd, F=4th, G=5th, Ab=b6th, Bb=b7th.

Memorize the C Natural Minor Scale note names and number formula.
C Natural Minor - note names= C, D, Eb, F, G, Ab, Bb and C    

C Natural Minor - number formula=1/R, 2nd, b3rd, 4th, 5th, b6th, b7th and root/8. 

C1, D2, Eb/b3, F4, G5, Ab/b6, Bb/b7, C. 

1,2,b3,4,5,b6,b7,8/1.   

The note to note intervals are the same for all keys. This applies to any string, octave, position or instrument. 

Using the note name chart below - play the C natural minor scale starting from low thick E string 1st fret up neck, then back down neck. Repeat this same process for each string. Remember to say note names out loud as you play each note up and then down in tone. Repeat this process for all 6 strings: Low E, then A, D, G, B and thin E string. The underlined fret number indicates dot positions: 

open   1        3,      5,        7,       9,          12,          15,      17     19,   21,        24

Now play and say out loud the C Natural Minor scale note by note up and back each string. 

Repeat this process for all strings.


F, G, Ab, Bb, C, D, Eb, F - F, Eb, D, C, Bb, Ab, G, F 

this is C Natural Minor scale starting on 1st fret low E string.


bB, C, D, Eb, F, G, Ab, Bb - Bb, Ab, G, F, Eb, D, C, Bb

this is C Natural Minor scale starting on A string 1st fret Bb to Bb 13th fret octave.

 

D, Eb, F, G, Ab, Bb, C, D - D, C, Bb, Ab, G, F, Eb, D 

this is C Natural Minor scale starting on open D to D 12th fret octave.

 

G, Ab, Bb, C, D, Eb, F, G - G, F, Eb, D, C, Bb, Ab, G 

this is C Natural Minor scale starting on open G to G 12th fret octave.

 

C, D, Eb, F, G, Ab, Bb, C - Bb, Ab, G, F, Eb, D, C, Bb 

this is C Natural Minor scale starting on 1st fret B string to C 13th fret octave.

 

F, G, Ab, Bb, C, D, Eb, F - Eb, D, C, B, A, G, F 

this is C Natural Minor scale starting on 1st fret high E string to 13th fret.
