About this tab version
5 Pentatonic scale shapes. 100% accurate and simple to understand. Was this info helpful? Yes No
These are the 5 pentatonic scale shapes that connect all the notes across the entire fret board so you can 
solo everywhere instead of just one boxed shape. This is the Key of A. (first shape starts on the 5th fret of 
the E string.) If you wanted to know these shapes in the key of A#/Bb, you would move all these shapes up by 
one fret and so on. These shapes apply to every key. It just depends on where you begin the first shape. 

100% accurate 

|--------------5-7---------|                  Shape 1 (Basic pentatonic we all know)

|------------7-10---------------|              Shape 2

|--------------10-12------------------|         Shape 3

|--------------12-14-------------------|         Shape 4

|--------------14-17-------------------|          Shape 5

|--------------17-19-------------------|           Shape 1 (Octave)

I'm no expert but I believe these tabs are the A-minor Pentatonic.
The A-major Pentatonic will use some of the same shapes but the position of the root note will be different.
