What exactly makes a "Suspended Pentatonic" Scale "Suspended". when i was at the MAB show a guy i was talking to mentioned it, and i have heard of it, but am not sure on what is, any idea?

Whoops, Andrew's area. So I removed my answer, protocol is the Instructor gets first crack.

edit: Ok, I put it back in after reading Tony, as he said this was a good site in general.

Good link fkalich - thanks - well worth looking at other articles on this site. Basically you suspended the 3 (or b3) with the 2nd - much the same as you do for the sus2 chord. Scale then contains 1, 2, 4, 5, b7.

Cheers,
Tony
