I'm trying to learn the pentatonic scale, however I don't want to memorise the notes of a particular pentatonic scale.
Could someone show me the intervals for a pentatonic scale so I can work out the rest
(I believe the intervals is the root note then summat like W or H (whole or half step up)

any help would be gladly appreciated


N.B. I did search & trawl through pages on UG forums trying to find it but to no avail
