Yes, of course; this is completely normal.

I've had pretty good luck using this site for piano scale fingerings:

For Eb minor pentatonic, here is what some experts have to say:

Marius Nordahl-------12341241245
Randy Halberstadt---12312341234
Peter Martin----------21231
Steven Goomas------12313
Nahum----------------12312312345
Nahum alternate ----13124131245
Piano Scales site ----123123

Do you see the common thread here? It's a bit hard to decipher, but if you examine this list carefully, you will see this pattern: Most pianists only have five fingers on their right hand!

I hope that is helpful. laugh

My fingers are slow, but easily keep pace with my thoughts.

fingerings depends of the speed i think , at slow speeds the fingerins doesnt matter alot but at fast tempo the best is the less movement of the hand.

Most of chances that a Eb pentatonic passage in range of two octaves will be rapid.
