Watch the Pentatonic Scale online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Melodic Patterns

Pentatonic Scale Example 4 uses the low side and the high side of the scale but with two adjacent strings. This is when we introduce finger rolls, and I discuss these at length in my video presentation. If you look at the scale you will see how you go low –low, meaning you go A to D, the fifth fret of both the sixth and fifth strings. The next motif is C to E, the high side of the sixth and fifth strings. Each motif is an ascending fourth, or in the terms of the C to the E, it's a Major third interval. Then you move this through the scale, building this ascending motif of two notes off each scale degree.
