PENTATONIC SCALE II

PATTERN SHIFT

You should be playing the Em Pentatonic Box Pattern very well now.  Let’s take that pattern and shift it up the fretboard.

 

With the Em Box Pattern we start on the E Open String (0 Fret).  Shift the starting pointing up to the 5th Fret.  That note on the 5th fret is A so the name of this Box Pattern is  Am Pentatonic Box Pattern (see illustration).
