When playing the pentatonic blues scale in A on the 5th fret. Why is the D# played on the 4th fret 2nd string and not on the 8th fret 3rd string. That is confusing. (look at the guitar scales section to see this)

uhm, i'm not entirely certain but does it even matter? i play my D# on the 8th fret on the 3rd string. I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter

I punched it up in the scales section and it gave me the D# but on the b string 4th fret. It's the same note. I say play it. When i play a blues scale I use a variation in order to get a triplet feel..



e--------------------------------5-7-8--
B--------------------------5-7-8--------
G--------------------5-7-8--------------
D--------------5-6-7--------------------
A--------5-6-7--------------------------
E--5-7-8--------------------------------

Sometimes you gotta improvise. If you've got a scale with 8 notes but you want to make a 12 note run you either double up something or fill in a gap (chromatics)

I know its the same note. Thats not in question here. You have other notes on that 8th fret as well. So going to the 4th fret dont make sence RIGHT?

No since at all. I would play the 8th fret G string.

yeah i play it on the G-string too. But when it comes down to it, it's all about what is more comfortable to you.
