    Thanks for the detailed explanation Carl, I have a question, what happen if the song is on G minor, i would use the same “root” pattern ? or for the songs in minor the theory changes a bit?

      Hey David, the easiest way to figure out the minor keys is to know your relative major/minor keys. Each major key shares the exact same notes as another minor key.

      For the key of G minor it’s relative major key is Bb major. Therefore, Bb major uses the exact same notes as G minor so you can simply visualize your Bb major pentatonic scales when improvising over a G minor chord progression and those scale forms suddenly become G minor pentatonic without having to think about anything else. 🙂
