Now we know how to play the pentatonic scales. So what does that mean, pentatonic? Well, "penta-" is 5, pentatonic, and "-tonic" means notes, so 5-note scales. So if you've noticed, we've only really been playing 5 notes over and over again. Now what we're going to try and introduce are the major scale. And you know that - you've heard this all your life: Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, La, Ti, Do. Now what we're going to do instead of just learning a million scales all over the place, let's be practical and let's learn it over what we already know. Let's stick with A minor - that's what we've been working with this whole time. So on the 6th string I'm going to find A and I'm going to put my 1st finger on it and now I know I'm in minor. And we know now that we can use our very first pentatonic scale. We know that we can extend it, but now I want to try to introduce some of those major notes. So the pattern is: 1, 3, 4, 1, 3, 4. Now, this one's going to be a little tricky; we're going to go 1, 3, and then 4 but notice that I've stretched across 5 frets here, so 1, 3, 4. Then, here on the 3rd string we're going to do 1, 3, 1, 2, 4, 1, 3, 4 - and of course you can go backwards. And there you go - there's there major/minor scale over the pentatonic pattern number 1.
