MINOR PENTATONIC
Bar Chord Fingerings
-
TONIC NOTE – Gives the key name, strongest note of the scale.
-
MAIN NOTES - Most riffs use only the low notes of a scale.
A Shape Minor Pentatonic Scale.
Notice that the main notes are in the same shape or pattern as they were for the
E shape. This time though the pattern is moved one string towards the floor.
This fingering belongs to the A bar chord.
Both the chord and the scale share string 5 as their tonic note.
The chord and the scale are built in front of the tonic note
(or musically higher than the tonic note).
The musical name of the chord is A, and of course so is A the musical name for the scale.
A Shape Chord.
