THE DORIAN PENTATONIC SCALE
*OK, I always give a scale a quick google before I pop it up here and it seems that the term "Dorian Pentatonic" is not really etched in stone. There are a few pentatonic variations that are quite reasonably referred to as "Dorian Pentatonic" since they have been adjusted to include a 6.
The version I am publishing here is a five note scale that contains the intervals: 1,b3,4,5,6.
I understand this is the version used by players lie BB King and Robben Ford.
It is the 4th mode of The Dominant Pentatonic Scale, or you can make it by lowering the b7 in The Minor Pentatonic Scale to a 6.
The free guitar scale diagrams below lay out THE DORIAN PENTATONIC SCALE for you all over the neck and as the five interlocking positions that link together to let you play the scale any where on the neck in any key.
