WHAT IS A PENTATONIC SCALE?
A pentatonic scale is one consisting of five notes, and that’s it! It is used widely in all genres and styles, and it is one of the most crucial types of scale for guitarists. There are five forms or templates (boxes) for each key. The boxes remain unchanged, except starting positions are different. Therefore, once you grasp one key, other ones will come much easier!
WHAT DO DOTS IN CHORD DIAGRAMS STAND FOR?
The black dots are the notes of a scale.
The red dots are the root notes of the key you are using right now. For example, in C major these dots stand for Cs.
