pentatonic mastery can be yours!

Chapter 1: THE MINOR PENTATONIC MODES

 

In this first chapter of The Auer Method you will learn the 5 modes

of the minor pentatonic scale. 

You should learn and master each mode one at a time before moving onto the next. 

 Mode 1                          

 Mode 2                          

 Mode 3                          

 Mode 4                         

 Mode 5                         

Note: Mode 2 starts with a flat 3rd note  b3  which is the 2nd note of Mode 1 and that the

entire upper half of Mode 2 is the same as the lower half of Mode 1.

Mode 1

Mode 2

This is how the modes connect from octave to octave.

Notice this connection with all the modes.

Start on the   R   to hear the tonic of each mode.

In the key of G Minor

Mode 1

Mode 1

starts on the 

3rd fret

Mode 2

Mode 2

starts on the 

6th fret

Mode 3

Mode 3

starts on the 

8th fret

Mode 4

Mode 4

starts on the 

10th fret

Mode 5

Mode 5

starts on the 

13th fret

Mode 1 - one octave higher 

Then Mode 1

repeats on the octave 

of G which is the

15th fret

This should help clear up any confusion on how the modes

connect up the neck from octave to octave
