All right, so now let's talk about extending what we already know, right? So pentatonic pattern number 1, if you remember is 1, 4, 1, 3, 1, 3, 1, 3, 1, 4, 1, 4, and this is very up and down here on the guitar, right? So at some point you're going to have to think about moving diagonally and through the scale. No matter where your scale starts. In this case let's play in A-minor all right. So remember for me to put that scale in the right place for A-minor I'm gonna find A on the sixth string which is here on here fifth fret, and now I know my pentatonic scale. The very first pattern I ever learned goes right there. And now I'm gonna extend it. I'm gonna back up two places, right? And I'm gonna use this pattern it's 1, 3, 1, 3, 3, so you see that shift there, right? We have 1, 3, 1, 3, 3, right? Now we're going to do the same thing but starting here 1, 3, 1, 3, 3, right? Now you would think that it's gonna start here just like it did before but because of the way the guitar is tuned I have to start it here in order for it all to work out. So I'm gonna do the same exact pattern but now over here 1, 3, 1, 3, 3. You know and you can hear it's the same notes, right? See how it's the same notes over and over again just in a different octave every time. So let's try to put it all together now right, so we're gonna go. That's it, that's how you can extend your very first pentatonic scale.
