Hey can anyone tell me what the five pentatonic modes are, and any online lessons that will help.
Thanks in advance!!

Generally they aren't used, and you don't specify which pentatonic scale you're taking modes from.

Edit: Upon playing with them for a while, I'll concede that they do have their uses.

Minor Pentatonic

I. 1 b3 4 5 b7

II. 1 2 3 5 6 (= major pentatonic)

III. 1 2 4 5 b7

IV. 1 b3 4 b6 b7

V. 1 2 4 5 6

try musician talk. Pentatonic modes aren't really "basics".

They're used as substitutions for the diatonic scales; you wouldn't try to build chords from them.

You can find out about the 5 pentatonic modes in the CAGED system. Each mode or two will fit a chord. Each mode shape will have a major and a minor pattern in it. Just that they have a different root (tonic) but still the same fingerings.
