Pentatonic Practice

I wrote this lesson to show the relationship between the Pentatonic Major and Pentatonic Minor chords.

The first and second bar (C Major - A minor) are both played in the same scale shown here.
C maj / A min

In the first bar I started on the E-string 8th fret because that is the root (C) and on the second bar I started on the 5th fret (A).

In the 3rd and 4th bars I used this part of the Pentatonic scale.
C maj / A min

The root A is E-string 5th fret and the root C is A-string 3rd fret

And in the last 4 bars (5th, 6th, 7th ,8th)I used these

So, what I am trying to show you is that the A minor and C major pentatonic scales are the same but the root is in a different spot. (not just true for A and C only)
