How to Play a Minor Pentatonic Scale in D Sharp / E Flat

Learn how to play a minor pentatonic scale in D Sharp / E Flat in this keyboard tutorial from Howcast.


Hi, this is Stephanie from Tomato's House of Rock, and I'm going to show you how to play an E-flat minor pentatonic scale. This is a really fun one, because it's actually all black keys. So from the minor scale we're going to want the one, the three, the four, the five, the flat seven; because it's minor, and the E-flat, the octave back on top again. So those notes are going to work out to E-flat, G-flat, A-flat, B-flat, D-flat, and E-flat on top again.

What we're going to do for the fingering is just one, two, three, thumb under to B-flat, and then just two, three on top. Coming down it's going to be three, two, one, three crosses to the A-flat, three, two, one. And that's how you play an E-flat minor pentatonic scale.
