As we already know from the minor pentatonic scale theory lesson, the B minor pentatonic scale has 5 notes (which are derived from the minor scale). This is the formula for the minor pentatonic, as well as its notes in the key of B.
|Minor pentatonic scale||1||b3||4||5||b7|
|B minor pentatonic notes||B||D||E||F#||A|
Here is a guitar fretboard diagram of the B minor pentatonic scale. Notice that the notes repeat along the entire width of the fretboard, based on the formula for the scale.
To help us visualize the scale, there are 5 minor pentatonic scale shapes.
Here they are, applied to the B minor pentatonic.
