Pentatonic Scale Exercises

These scale patterns are only being played over the first pentatonic scale. Once you get the feel for the different patterns, you can use the second, third, fourth and fifth pentatonic scales. The same goes for the major and minor scales or any different scale shapes you learn.

The idea of playing these patterns is to try and get your fingers to play these shapes in an order they're not use to. See how you go making up your own patterns. Try to trick your fingers and make it a little challenging. Remember, the harder it is now the easier all those difficult solos will be later on.
