Watch the Five Modes Of The Major Pentatonic online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from Blues Connections: Major
There are five notes in a pentatonic scale, which means there are five modes of it. Some people refer to these as the five positions of the pentatonic scale. We'll be building a scale pattern off of each note in the pentatonic scale, always starting on the 6th string. The goal is to try to stay in position as much as possible, only shifting positions to make more efficient fingerings. Say the scale degree numbers out loud as you move up and down the scales. Even better, sing them!
