A minor pentatonic scale starting on the E note

The next position of the A minor pentatonic scale will be starting at the 12th fret.

Once again we are still using the A minor pentatonic scale, but starting at the 12th fret. Notice the fingering pattern. 1-4, 1-4, 1-3, 1-3, 2-4, 1-4. The illustration below shows the notes that are played and make up this position. It will take some time to get use to all the different fingering patterns.

Listen to this E to G

pentatonic scale

The illustration below shows the suggested fingering pattern.

1 = index
2 = Middle
3 = Ring
4 = Pinkie
T = Thumb

pentatonic scales.

The tablature has been included below.


You start this position with your 1 finger, 12th fret or E note Low E string. Then play the G note with the 4 finger Low E string. The next note is played with the 1 finger on the A note, A string. Look above at all the note positions. Continue through the scale until you become comfortable with this pattern.

There's only a few more patterns to cover. The next position of the A minor pentatonic scale will be the 15th fret position starting at the G note.

Good Luck,

Guitar Secrets
