Hi, I'm Stephanie from Tomato's House of Rock and I'm going to show you how to play a C sharp major pentatonic scale. This is a pretty fun one because when we pull the tones out of the C sharp major scale, we've got mostly black keys. We're going to need the 1, we're going to need the 2, and we're going to need the 3, 5, 6 and then 1 back on top again so really the only white key is going to be this F.

So this is the place that we're going to use our thumb for the crossover which means we're actually going to start with our 2 on the C sharp. So, we'll have 2, 3, thumb to F, 2, 3 on the G sharp and the A sharp and then pinkie back up on that C sharp again. Then we'll come down the same way so we're just going to have 5, 3, 2, 1. 3 crosses over, 3, 2, you're back. And that's how you play a C sharp major pentatonic scale.
