Watch the Sliding Major Pentatonics online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from Blues Connections: Major

The sliding major pentatonic scale does just what you think it would -- uses slides to transition into new positions. It's a super user friendly scale that only uses two fingers and has a repeating pattern. We'll start by playing the root with the first finger and the 2nd scale degree with the third finger. Then, we slide the third finger up into a new position to play the 3rd scale degree. Now our first finger is in the perfect position to play the 5th scale degree on the next string. The 6th is played with the third finger and that completes the pattern. The end of the scale puts you in a perfect position to play the next octave, you just have to make an adjustment for the interval change between the G and B string.

We already covered single string major pentatonics earlier in the course, and like I said then, it's important to know and visualize the distances between each note of the major pentatonic scale.
