Connecting the Pentatonic Patterns

What’s up guys!?  Today I wanted to give ya something that is HIGHLY effective if you’ve been playing around with the pentatonic patterns for a bit.  Listed below are two diagrams that will show you how the pros often connect all the different patterns.  Be sure you are comfortable with ALL the patterns first.   Enjoy!

The Minor Pentatonic scale is one of the most widely used scales in improvisation in every musical style so it makes sense to know it well all over the guitar neck. When it comes to moving beyond the first pattern learned the next step is usually to introduce five overlapping patterns, each staying strictly in position on the neck. In reality, most Blues and Rock soloists connect these positions in very repeatable ways creating just two patterns that cover the entire neck. These are shown below in the key of A:
