Yup, pretty much.

There is a lot that comes down to personal preference, also. For example: I don't like playing fast alternate picking with a thin pick, because it feels like it's squirming around...

This is very true, but it would be very unusual to find both A and A# in the same scale, with no B note. That's why I would guess the A# should really be a Bb.

You're right, though, without context...

G A A# F# D?!

G A Bb D F# would be some kind of G harmonic minor (G A Bb C D Eb F#). I think it's that.

See what a difference the note names can make? :p:

This.

Therefore, you can use the shapes of the pentatonic scales to play modal sounds. It's called "pentatonic substitution", and is a fairly common thing to do.
