This dominant 7 pentatonic pattern gets tougher again. It has four notes in C and four notes in D flat but they are all spread throughout the bar.
Again, this pattern helps you to get comfortable transposing quickly. And all of these patterns get your ear comfortable with hearing a number of different sounds: the dominant 7 pentatonic scale, the juxtaposition of two neighboring scales, the polytonal sound of consistently playing “outside” the key, and with some of the patterns, the sound of quickly changing melodic motion.
So think of these patterns as tools to increase your musical vocabulary, improve and challenge your ear, and to practice technical peak performance.

Can you give us the 5 shapes (positions) for guitar?
Graham English says
Hi Bruce. I don’t play guitar. And I’m not exactly sure how the 5 shapes you mention relates to the patterns. Sorry I can’t be more help.
