Pentatonic scale is a 5 note scale.

Minor pentatonic, which makes up 95% of blues solos and 85% (apprx) rock solos, consists of the 1, m3, 4, 5, and m7 of a key. If that doesn't make any sense to you, try this shape:

------------------------------------5--8
------------------------------5--8
------------------------5--7----
-----------------5--7-----------
----------5--7------------------
---5--8-------------------------


There are bunches of lessons on this on UG, try a search or 2 on soloing.

So the C(maj) scale is

C D E F G A B C

the C(maj) Pentatonic scale would be

C E F G B ?

No.. C - E - F - G - B would be 1 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 7 in reference to the major scale. The major pentatonic in reference to the major scale is 1 - 2 - 3 - 5 - 6, so your C Major pentatonic scale would comprise of C - D - E - G - A.

Coffeeguy explained the minor pentatonic in reference to the major scale, which is 1 - b3 - 4 - 5 - b7.. making C Minor pentatonic C - Eb - F - G - Bb.

Pentatonic is five tones per octave. greeks were first to use it back in ancient times which is probably why it has become one of the most common form of scales in music. dunno if other ppl answered, just thought i'd share anyways.
