  • Using F Minor/Ab Major Pentatonic As An Example

    Notice that both scales contain exactly the same notes, patterns and distances between notes. The only difference is that F minor pentatonic starts on F and Ab major pentatonic starts on Ab. They’re said to be related because they share the same notes.

    To Find The Relative Major

    If you’re playing a minor scale and you want to find the relative major:

    • Go up three frets on the same string or

    • Go down two frets and down a string

    The relative major is a minor third up from the minor.

    Find The Relative Minor

    If you’re playing a major scale and you want to find the relative minor, do the opposite.

    • Go down three frets on the same string or

    • Go up two frets and up a string

    The relative minor is a minor third down from the major.
