Here are some licks that incorporate both Major and Minor Pentatonic Scale notes. Now, how does this work? If you want the answer be sure to check out the blog linked below.

I tend to think of it as targeting notes that separate the two. It also helps if you think of a part of it as all major then another part as all minor. In the “E” Shapes (both major and minor) they both have their own target notes. In the key of C, Major tends to be the 9th fret on the 3rd string and 10th fret on the 1st and 2nd strings. For Minor they tend to be the 8th fret on the 3rd string and 11th fret on the 1st and 2nd strings.
