BAGED octaves : 7-string guitar (BEADGBE: Low B tuning)
C pentatonic major scale pseudo 3nps : General

BAGED octaves logo

In BLOGoZON No.360 the box shapes for the C pentatonic major scale were presented using the
BAGED octaves methodology - this is the standard BAGED octaves guitar system.

In this BLOGoZON we look at the C pentatonic major scale, again, but with pseudo 3nps shapes and join them all together to form one long BAGED octaves chain.

The diagram that follows shows all five of the BAGED octaves shapes for use with the
pseudo three notes per string patterns for a 7-string guitar tuned to BEADGBE :-

The conjoined BAGED octaves sequence is shown for C natural in the diagram that follows:-

The diagrams that follow show all of the C pentatonic major scale notes plotted over the 7-string guitar's fretboard in the BAGED octaves and GuitarPro6 styles:-

As always a more long term solution to fretboard navigation is to see scales 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 C pentatonic major scale are detailed below in the
BAGED octaves manner:-

The tables and tabbed panels below detail all five box shapes for the
C pentatonic major scale pseudo 3nps box shapes in the BAGED octaves style.

Once the individual box shapes have been assimilated all five shapes should be linked together and played in one continuous exercise (with the first shape - 7B5B2:5A3 - being repeated at the 12th fret).
