So, we've learned pentatonic pattern 1. Let's learn pattern 2 and then we're going to put it all together eventually, right? So, pattern 2, how about we do it at the 12th fret, so it's going to go 1, 4, 1, 4, 1, 3, 1, 3, here's where it gets tricky, 2, 4, and then 1, 4. So let's go over that again. We have 1, 4, 1, 4, 1, 3, 1, 3, 2, 4, 1,4. Then, of course, backwards we want to do the same thing but just starting on the higher note, right? 4, 1, 4, 2, 3, 1, 3, 1, 4, 1, 4, 1. How about we do it at the 7th fret. 1, 4, 1, 4, 1, 3, 1, 3, 2, 4, 1, 4. How about backwards. How about at the 3rd fret. And, of course, let's try it open. Again, we have to imagine there's a fret here, but we're going to do it in a more natural position, and it looks like this: 0, 3, 0, 3, 0, 2, 0, 2, 1, 3, so no open string there right. Just 1, 3 and then 0, 3 for the last one, and then of course, backwards is the same. There you go, pentatonic pattern 2.
