He does a good job with showing when and why each of them work, in a simple and easy to understand format. He also does a good job explaining relative major and minor keys, and how by moving the minor pentatonic pattern down three frets it become the major pentatonic in the same key, ie. moving the Em pattern at the 12th fret down three frets becomes E major, the Dm at the 10th fret down three frets becomes D major, the Am at the 5th down three frets becomes A major. He also explains how in a blues in a major key, you can use both the major and minor pentatonic in that key and it sounds good. He also has a nice chart showing the 3 major and 3 minor chords in some common major keys, and their relative minor, which uses the same six chords. When I was learning I had to figure all this out on my own, because I didn't have videos like this explaining it all so simply to me.
