Well I just realized that knowing the minor pentatonic basically means you know the major pentatonic. I cant believe i was that dumb to not catch that.

well anyways my question is... How do you play the First box/open strings position of E major Pentatonic if some notes are cut out? Do you have to tune to Eflat? I hope im not sounding confusing but this is the box pattern im talking about.

You don't need to tune to anything.

E major pentatonic is the notes E F# G# B C# , you can play the scale anywhere those notes appear.

However, being able to play E minor pentatonic does NOT mean you can play E major pentatonic, because the notes of Em pentatonic are E G A B D...the two scales only have two notes in common. The patterns aren't as important as you think, what really matters is the notes patterns contain.

I know the notes are still there of course, they are all over the fret board but you cant play that specific box position there correct?
