Google it and you will probably (if you search properly) find a website that will show you all the position of the pentatonic on the neck (don't forget that on the 12's frets the notes start all over again, wich mean the 12 E string for exemple is the same thing as the open string)

You will probably find it on the internet with all position. To change key, just have fun moving the whole "shape" from one fret at a time on the neck, so if you have 8-9, well it is going to be 9-10 if you move it to the right, and so on...

clear?

the penatonic is the scale used by blues, rock,even metal guitarist everywhere. Its the most user freindly scale out there.

I found a cool little program called scaletool the other day. It's free. Google it.

It shows a lot of different scales and allows you to play around with the notes. It also displays as either a keyboard or fretboard. Again, pretty cool since I'm trying to learn theory, guitar and piano at the same time.

Guys, check your spelling. It's "PENTATONIC", not "pentonic" or "penatonic". It's from the Greek for "five-tone" scale.
