To read this diagram;

The letters EADGBe on the right-hand side are the tunings which is in the standard mode *please go to page "Fretboards Diagram and Various Tunings"* to know more about fretboards.

The six horizontal lines represent the strings. The first string (highest tone which is indicated as "e") is on top and the sixth string (lowest tone which is indicated as "E") is at the bottom. The vertical lines represent the frets. The numbers above the diagram indicate each frets (1 is the first fret, 7 is the seventh fret and so on).

The BIG black dots shows you where to put your fingers while the small black dots are your marking frets. The scale's root is the root of the scale and it is indicated in BIG "red" colours.

A pentatonic scale is made up of five notes per octave. The Major Pentatonic scale is similar to major Diatonic scale, but without the 4th and the 7th note.

In this diagram the 1st Pentatonic position started from the lower "F" (1st fret) and back again to higher note "F" (12th fret) on the 5th position.
(F major pentatonic consists of F, A#, D#, G# and C).
