    I wrote down these exercises yesterday, while at work and had nothing better to do :)

    Just reach the notes of the A pentatonic scale (exercises 1 to 4) and G pentatonic scale (5 to 8) from the upper and lower semitone.

    Not sure what you mean, mrizzone.

    A G pentatonic major or minor scale consist of only 5 notes within the octave as föllows:

    Your exercises contain long chromatic sequences which don´t belong in a pentatonic scale.

    Am I misunderstanding you completely?

    Hmm I scratched my head for a minute too.
    But then I got it -- he's approaching each note of the scale from a half-step above or below.
    Look at every other note.

    A cool idea, thanks.

    Yu´re right, Honkie!

    One does find the pentatonic scales hidden in there.
    Maybe good exercises for those who already are 100 % confident
    with pentatonic scales . . .
