Here is the same scale we just went over, starting on the 5th string. Knowing the 5th and 6th string scale shapes is a great place to start, as it offers several position options for each key.

Here is an example in the style of Carlos Santana in the key of B minor.

The notes in the B minor Pentatonic Scale are: B - D - E - F# - A - B.
