What's the difference between a minor and a major pentatonic scales?
As far as I'm concerned, they're the same thing.

For one, they are different scales, and sound different. Have you looked up the forms? I hate typing out tablature :P

I did look up the forms, and the forms look exactly the same to me. If I'm for some reason looking at the wrong thing then I'm sorry. I'm not just asking out of the blue, I looked up the lessons on UG, but they seem very misleading.

Minor pentatonic in relation to major scale: 1 b3 4 5 b7
Major pentatonic in relation to the major scale: 1 2 3 5 6.

A minor pent: A C D E G
A major pent: A B C# E F#

basically, they have the same "boxes", if you will, but they are played differently, and the boxes arent corresponding.
For instance,
if you were playing a minor that was like
3-6----------------------
----3-6------------------
--------3-5--------------
------------3-5----------
----------------3-5------
--------------------3-6--
It wouldnt be that same box in a major scale
I guess im kinda bad at explaining this stuff, but if you we're playing in a major, the 'box' would be different

Ok, I actually think I understand, it really helped to look at a piano when you said this. Thanks!
