Pentatatonic Scale A minor


G————–5-7—
D———-5-7——-
A——5-7———–
E–5-8—————

This is a moveable minor scale.
….remember your octaves….
Hope this helps
Just by adding one note to the pentatonic minor you get the blues scale.
Tabs:
G|--------------------------------------|
D|-----------5-7------------------------|
A|-----5-6-7----------------------------|
E|-5-8----------------------------------|

Pentatonic major
Tabs:
G|--------------------------------------|
D|---------4-7---------------------------|
A|-----4-7--------------------------------|
E|-5-7------------------------------------|

The tune to Amazing Grace is in a Pentatonic Major.

To visualize pentatonic scales, go to the piano (or ask a friend that can play one), play only the black keys, the major pentatonic will start on F# and the minor pentatonic will start on D#.
