Try playing the scale in all five positions. Start on the root, wherever it is located in each position, and play down to the lowest note of the position, then back up again. Then, play up to the highest note and back down to the root. Keep a steady rhythm.
After playing the scale in each position, try shifting between positions as you play. Make up licks, or just play a solo. The major pentatonic scale is great for playing in any major key, or over a major chord in a song. After learning this scale, the minor pentatonic and major scales will be a breeze.
