Hi, am I right in thinking there are four positions in which you can play the Pentatonic minor scale in full? I only know it in fifth pos.

I know the notes in the scale it's just I'm at a stage in theory where I'm trying to piece things together before then 'eureka' moment of clarity. so every litle bit of info is greatly appreciated..

Maybe your Dads pissed because hes shooting blanks :P
there are 5 i believe. couldnt name them all i only know the first three. sorry if thats not much help.
There are 5 standard patterns, which can be played in any position.

a "pattern" is the shape as it can be seen on the neck, a "position" is a particular location on the neck. Alot of people confuse those terms for some reason.

yeah there are 5 and when you learn them you can play it in any key because theyre all the same they just start on different spots on the neck

No. There are plenty of patterns for the scale, many more than five.

I believe he was correcting the use of the term " positions", ( which should have read patterns as he suggests), not how many patterns there are.
