Photo by Bigstock photo The standard minor pentatonic scale is normally played over 2 octaves and stays within one position. If you have been playing and improvising with the minor pentatonic scale for some time it’s likely that you want to break out of that one position and expand your reach on the fretboard. You can use the minor pentatonic scale over 3 octaves for this purpose. It wil give you much more freedom and flexibility. When you play “the pentatonic scale over 3 octaves” it means you actually play 3 pentatonic scales, one after another.
