shown in the key of D major:

  • create the Amaj pentatonic scale, second fret position in the key of D major.
  • shifting the major third C# of the Amaj pentatonic scale up a minor second creates the Dmaj pentatonic scale.
  • shifting the major third F# of the Dmaj pentatonic scale up a minor second creates the Gmaj pentatonic scale.
