The Minor Pentatonic Scale


Nov 21, 2017 Beginning, General Comments are off

In addition to the Blues Scale, the Minor Pentatonic Scale is used frequently!

You can substitute this scale for the Blues Scale or combine it with the blues

scale to create great melodic soloing and vocal melodies.


The number formula is:

R, b3, 4, 5, b7, 8th/R or octave.

This formula is the same for all keys.


The notes in the key of C would be:

C = R, Eb = b3, F=4, G = 5, Bb =b7, C = octave of root.


Now memorize the number formula and corresponding note names.

Next time I will show you some fun examples with this scale.
