View Full Version : Proper fingerings for the Pentatonics

Probably mentioned before, but I have trouble building up velocity especially on the Bb pentatonic scales. Got any fingering ideas? I would be more than happy.

Beyond this:

I've come to trust Yoke Wong, but, am not above .......

..... just relying upon first finding the notes involved .......
Major pentatonic will use the 1, 2, 3, 5 & 6 notes of the Major scale.
Minor pentatonic will use the 1, b3, 4, 5, b7 notes of the same Major scale.

..... and then just figure out how I'll do the thumb under that works best for me.

If you come up with something other than the above let us know.
