I am learning the minor pentatonic scales and am a little confused about the roots. For example if you want to play in the C key(?) the whole fretboard do you simply find the C note in each "box"and focus around that note?
Yeah...pretty much i think so.
would the c be considered the root?
I honestly havent studied minor stuff tooo much so im really not much help lol...but yeah C would be considered the root. C minor scale? yeah i know that one C is the root.
Whenever you're in the key of C, no matter if it's major, minor, whatever, C is always gonna be your root note.
If it's the key of C then it can be C major where the root is C or A minor where the root is A.
