hi, i found a great book from france for pentatonic scale shapes, and i am learning these shapes by heart, and using it as a reference.

for a pentatonic major scale starting on a root note on the 6th string my book says shape number 1 for a note on the 5th string it says to use shape number 4.

 

then i found a website that says to use shape number 5 ( 6th string ) and number 3 ( 5th string). (https://www.guitarorb.com/guitar-scales/)

can you check out these visuals and tell me which method I should stick to or what I am not understanding ?

thanks a lot !!

Le 'nom de plume' 'harmuser', en Anglais, c'est 'harm user', ce n'est-pas bon, comprendez-vous?:wave:

FYI, posting links on your first post here is rarely going to get you any results...and with that user name? :facepalm:

We are pretty 'gun shy' about that after decades of spam, porn and malware.

Is it possible for you to post the actual images, rather than links?

I love reading very much, but in college I have to not only read a lot, but also write a lot of essays. In order to save your time, I recommend this https://essaylab.com/type-my-essay writing service. It can be extremely helpful for students here.
