Here’s how you change to a different Root Note or Pentatonic Scale.
Let’s randomly choose the E Minor Pentatonic Scale. The Root Note is “E”. Place “Pattern Guide 1” on the Fret Board Chart with “E”s showing in each Red Root Note hole—between frets 4 and 8 (pictured below).
Now this area of the fret board is valid for the E Minor Pentatonic Scale—using the same Pattern Guide as before!
If you could only memorize one Pattern out of the five, you could use it for any Root Note and Pentatonic Scale and in any Key! Try it out with the CD or backing track in the Key of E or E minor. That’s easy!
