Pentatonic Scale Guitar Patterns

The pentatonic scale is the most important scale to learn on the guitar, and thankfully, the pentatonic scale guitar patterns are also the easiest patterns to learn, because they have the fewest notes!

The pentatonic scale on guitar is also the most versatile scale you’re going to find, because as long as you’re in the right key, it contains no notes that will conflict with any of the chords in the song. This means, essentially, that the pentatonic minor scale is bulletproof. As long as you stay within the pentatonic scale pattern, you can’t play a wrong note. This feature makes it the best scale for beginners to learn, and also makes it endeared by professional musicians.
