Now you know all five patterns!!! Practise them, until you can play them easily and smoothly!

Practise: Move the patterns on the fingerboard into other keys!

Now we take a look how the patterns can be connected on the fingerboard

1 = Notes from Pattern 1
2 = Notes from Pattern 2
1/2 = common notes from Pattern 1 and 2.
3 = Notes from Pattern 3
2/3 = common notes from Pattern 2 and 3
4 = Notes from Pattern 4
3/4 = common notes from Pattern 3 and 4
5 = Notes from Pattern 5
4/5 = common notes from Pattern 4 and 5

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

10 11 12 13 14 15


The notes from the first twelve frets repeat themselves from the 13th fret (that means that the notes of the first fret are the same then on the thirteenth fret etc.) That means that you can play the pentatonic notes from the first fret on. I have changed the colour of these notes to show you all playable notes on the fingerboard in the keytone G.

Here are all patterns together (independend of the keytone)
