I was looking at this lesson http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/lessons/scales/major_and_minor_pentatonic_scales.html and decided to try and learn the minor pentatonic. I started in A, and as I wa learning I wrote down all the notes, I got A C D E G, ok those are the five notes.

The problem came when i tried changing this from A to E. I used the

0-3
0-2
0-2
0-2
0-3
0-3

shape and starting with an open E left me with E G A C D B, 6 notes, which doesn't fit in the scale....help?

Am I using the wrong shape, or is my logic totally flawed?

the shape is off. It should be (Listing the low E on the bottom)

0-3 E-G
0-3 B-D
0-2 G-A
0-2 D-E
0-2 A-B
0-3 E-G

The Notes are E G A B D

The shape seems to be wrong. It's

e| 0-----3
b| 0-----3
g| 0-----2
d| 0-----2
a| 0-----2
e| 0-----3

0---2
0---2
0---3

EDIT: I should've payed more attention to your post. I thought you were asking about the Aminor Pent. box starting with E, not E minor Pent, sorry.
