Say you know 1 box from the pentatonic in A and you want to know all boxes in A. what are the rules to make the other 4 boxes in the scale?

would say that they use the same notes

You need to understand the rules of scale construction, then you can work out all the boxes yourself!

I have a lesson on the basics of scales here, then you can pick out the lesson for whatever scale you are interested in building from my list of lessons here smile.gif

Thanks smile.gif I have read the lesson but I didn't catch the bit that let me construct the boxes sad.gif I think ill have to read it 3-4 times more biggrin.gif

Its in there though maybe not plainly ....

To make a box, start on any note of the scale and apply the formula from that point on, changing strings when necessary smile.gif
