AGEDC octaves logo

The AGEDC octaves sequence is shown for A natural in the diagram that follows:-

The diagrams that follow show all of the A pentatonic minor scale notes plotted over the 6-string guitar's

fretboard in both the Guitar Pro and AGEDC octaves styles:-

GuitarPro6 fingerboard

AGEDC octaves a pentatonic minor notes

As always a more long term solution to fretboard navigation is to see scales/arpeggios as INTERVAL shapes rather than note names - as these are universal to all scales, arpeggios and chords rather than specific to one particular root note - with this in mind the intervals for the A pentatonic minor scale are detailed below for the 6-string guitar in the AGEDC octaves manner:-

AGEDC octaves A pentatonic minor intervals

The table and tabbed panel below details all five box shapes for the A pentatonic minor scale for the
6-string guitar in the AGEDC octaves style.
