There is one form of the minor pentatonic scale that is exactly like the major pentatonic scale...

E-|--|0-|--|0-|
B-|--|0-|--|0-|
G-|0-|--|0-|--|
D-|0-|--|--|0-|
A-|0-|--|--|0-|
E-|--|0-|--|0-|

So. say I play this in the fifth position. It would be an A major pentatonic scale. Would this just be a different minor pentatonic scale in a different key? What would the root note be, and where would it be found in this form of the minor pentatonic?

its like that because of relative majors and minors, for example, if you play an A minor scale, its the exact same as a C major.
My Gear:
Gibson Faded Flying V
"Dante's Inferno" Iceman
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112
etc.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

It's not just the one "form". Every minor pentatonic finger position (or shape or
form or whatever you want to call it), is also a major pentatonic. They are modes of
each other.

I actually knew that, I was going to answer the question and look all knowledgeable, but I got beaten to it.
