Soloing with the minor pent u start on the root note to solo in what ever key it is right? SO if the key or chord is G u solo 1 position root note is G and do the minor pent scale. Now what i dont understand is there is a relative to every major there is to a minor. U go 2 steps back and say g major its relative minor is Em. For position 2 of the major pent my teacher says to start 2 steps back from the major. Im confused.

1 post minor this would start on G major

your talking about playing a minor scale ...over G major
the way your making it out.. playing a minor scale starting on G would be G minor.

You don't have to start on the root note when you are soloing. You can start wherever you think it sounds good!

If you are using the minor pentatonic over a chord progression, then the root note of the scale you use should be the root note of the key of the chord progression.

I'm not sure what you mean about what your teacher said - but the second position starts at where the first position leaves off - so if you are playing 2 notes per string, the upper note on each string for the first position would become the lower note of the second position - all the positions link up like that.

Did that make any sense?
