Watch the Building The Major Pentaonic Scale online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from Blues Connections: Major

First let's look at the major pentatonic formula: Root-2-3-5-6. We're going to build the scale off of a single string so we can see the intervallic relationships between the scale degrees. You can create a major pentatonic off of any note if you follow this formula: whole-whole-minor 3rd-whole-minor 3rd. A minor 3rd is one and half steps. As you're going through the scale, focus more on what scale degree you're on rather than the note's name.
