Ok I've been trying to learn the pentatonic minor scales but cant seem to find a proper tutorial for it. I've figured out all five patterns but have no idea how to find the place on the fretboard where I am supposed to play it. I understand that the first possition is played starting on the root note but after that how do I find the place to start the second pattern???
find the root note elsewhere and start from there
Learn the notes on the fretboard, learn the notes and intervals of the scale then put the two together.
That site is very helpful, thanks. Never thought there were that many types of scales
