Open G-tuning - The Minor Pentatonic Scale

This minor pentatonic scale is a simplified blues scale. I have have notated two slightly different fingerings, one a little more closed than the other. But both are close to the nut, and both are good for slide playing.

Do not get confused by the notation. I find that the notation gets cleaner if I use the G-dorian as basis for G-minor pentatonic, which really means that we can use the key signature of F-major (one flat).
