How to Play a Minor Pentatonic Scale in F

Learn how to play a minor pentatonic scale in F 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 F minor pentatonic scale. So, when you're in the key of F minor, the scale tones that we want for a minor pentatonic are going to be the 1, the 3, the 4, the 5, and the 7. An F minor, those notes work out to be F, A, B, B, B, C, and E, B. A good fingering for this scale is going to be 1, 2, 3, thumb under to C, and then 2, 3. Coming down, we're going to do the same thing, so we'll have 3, 2, 1, 3 crosses to the Bb, 3,2,1. That's how you play an F minor pentatonic scale.
