Here are the pentatonic scales for each key used in blues, country, rock n roll…

These are considered minor pentatonic. To play the major pentatonic scales (that country feel) Just count down 3 steps and play the relative key. For example if a country song in in the key of C you would play the a A minor pentatonic scale.

Thanks MGN

Oh, I do have one question, because I am lazy. What are the keys from top to bottom?

The keys are the first note in each pentatonic scale listed in that little image above -). For example the first pentatonic scale listed is C minor pentatonic so play the blues and rock n roll in C minor pentatonic and give it some country flair by adding in the A minor pentatonic scale (the A minor pentatonic is the same scale and notes as a C major pentatonic). Just ask me some questions, I can't explain all this right now ;-)
