    Great thing about pentatonic scales is the mileage you can get out of one pattern. One technique I like is to consider the notes of the minor pentatonic scale are the I-III-IV-V-VII of the Dorian mode. So if I am playing an Am pentatonic box pattern I can also play the same pattern up a whole step and up a perfect 5th, or Bm pentatonic and Em pentatonic over the same Am chord. They all contain the notes of A Dorian which is the same as G major. Nice way to add color and tensions to the blues. Great site by the way, lots of good info.
