Pentatonic scale

Postby DifferentFrank » Thu Jun 24, 2010 9:42 pm

Curious if anyone's noticed if they've chosen to limit themselves to it in a song. (To those who need an intro, it's a song whose melody is like the black keys on the piano... Penta because it limits you to five notes of the scale... In C, it would be C D E G A.)

Examples are 500 Miles, Amazing Grace... but also the Stones' Moonlight Mile...

Anyone know?
