KEY OF B EQUALS the B scale meaning that the scale of B major is the heart of our piecehere is the confusionsay i now use the same B scale only in minor pentatonic. (B,D,E,F#,A, 32232now this key according to what i have learned should only have 1 sharp F# 1 dagree up is G !!!!!WHAT key of G? shouldn't in still be KEY OF B I used a B scale?how do i know that im supposed to use a B minor pentatonic scale for the most part if the key is G? back to my question shouldnt the key equal my root note B?please put my mind at ease thanks WING.

I come home from work and learn seems like school once again. However i have never liked school sooo much hahahahaha WAY TO GO ANDREW ! give your self a pat on the back. im sure more then 1 person wants you to.
