PENTATONIC CHROMATIC SCALE:

As with the major and minor chromatic scales above, pentatonic chromatic scales also incorporate an additional chromatic tone or tones into their 5 tone structures. An example of this altered scale type is the 6 tone "Blues Scale" with 7 notes to the octave from the root. Shown below is a comparison of some pentatonic and pentatonic chromatic scales from the root C, and the alternate range of chromatic tones for incorporation into the construction of a pentatonic chromatic or 6 tone tone scale.
