What Jerry is saying is that every key has three possible minor or major pentatonic scales that work over them. If you play in A minor, you could use Am, Dm and Em pentatonic scales. That's because...

You can also use chords that use notes outside of the scale. But you need to be careful and avoid certain notes when playing over them. For example if we are in A major, G major is a pretty usual...

Eb is a pretty common accidental. Eb major is not that rare in C major songs. It is borrowed from the parallel minor (C minor).

Yeah, and the E major is as a secondary...

Name the notes in the chords. That helps. The first chord is G D E C. It could be Cadd9. The second one is D A B F. That's Dm6 (or Bm7b5 but they have the same notes in them).
