How to Play a Minor Pentatonic Scale in B

Learn how to play a minor pentatonic scale in B in this keyboard tutorial from Howcast.


Hi, I'm Stephanie from Tomato's House of Rock and I'm going to show you how to play a B minor pentatonic scale. So, in the key of B minor we're going to want the 1, the 3, the 4, the 5 and the 7 which is a flatted 7 here so it's going to be our A. In B minor all of our notes together, we're going to have B, D, E, F sharp, A and a B back on top again. So, the best fingering for this one actually has you starting with your 2 on B, it's just going to allow the easiest movement. So, we're actually going to go 2, 3, thumb crosses under to E, and then 2, 3, 4. Then we'll do the same thing coming down, we're going to have 4, 3, 2, 1, 3 crosses 3, 2. And that's how you play a B minor pentatonic scale.
