How to Play a Major Pentatonic Scale in F

Learn how to play a major pentatonic scale in F in this keyboard tutorial from Howcast.


Hi, this is Stephanie from Tomatoes House of Rock, and I'm going to show you how to play an F major pentatonic scale.

For and F major pentatonic scale the formula is going to be 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6 and we'll put the 1 on top again. In the key of F those notes are going to work out to be F, G, A, c, D, F and F. And a nice easy fingering for this one, being that it's all white keys, we're going to do just 1, 2, 3 thumb under to C, 1, 2 and let's use the 4 on top, it's pretty comfortable, it should be what's right underneath your finger that way. So, coming down we're going to have 4, 2, 1,3 crosses to A, 3, 2, 1 and you're back. That's how you play an F major pentatonic scale.
