David, what have I discovered here. In your Minor Pentatonics lesson you show the standard lead pattern for A minor as shown here: (1-2,1-2-3 slide)

In practicing for the Blues collaboration, I discovered that playing a variation works very well for the Eminor. (1-2,1-2-4) What am I doing here, mixing pentatonic and diatonic Eminor scales? Why does this sound so good with Eminor blues? It works starting on 5th or 7th fret. Forgive me I don't have the guitar explore software for the diagram. Thanks.

So sorry for the delay!
I am not sure what you mean here.
You are playing in an E minor key, right?
You are using which paterns? The same ones as I wrote fron the 5th and 7th fret?
Is that it?

I knew it was going to be confusing.

Take the standard lead pattern you show here for Amin.

Consider the pattern to have 5 notes, for instance on E-A strings, you'd play 5-7,5-7-9. That sounds perfectly fine with the E minor jam.

But if you instead play 5-7,5-7-10, it also sounds good, sometimes better depending on where you are in the progression. I know that practically speaking, what I am doing is sliding into the next pentatonic box, but I was hoping you could explain why it works.

Thanks.
