I just drew a complete fretboard diagram for guitar and then circled all the notes from the A Minor Pentatonic entirely from memory without having access to a guitar at all.

I am very pleased with myself. These lessons are actually starting to stick.

Nice work! smiley - applause

My guitar teacher taught me the pattern for a blues scale (smiley - musicalnotesmiley - bluesmiley - musicalnote) instead of a pentatonic, which was 20 years ago now smiley - senior but it's still the pattern my fingers fall into whenever I pick up a guitar.
