Building major pentatonic scales in a major scale
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.
- go to the next position by moving the Gmaj pentatonic scale up a major second → Amaj pentatonic scale.
- repeat in all positions
- repeat in all keys
