And I want to find some licks that sound good with it. I know you use them with two major chords that are a whole step apart and all, but when I play lead while jamming it just sounds like a repetetive bunch of notes. I'm extremely comfortable with the minor pentatonic, however..

I figured it out though. It's just the minor pentatonic with the flattened third I think.

The minor pentatonic already has a flattened third. That's why they call it the minor pentatonic.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

i thnk your thinking of the dominant pentatonic in minor?

So if you were playing in Em, you would play a pent on B?

is this the scale your talking about?
E dominant pentatonic: E - F# - G# - B - D

If you are trying to break away from pentatonic scales, try learning solos that use other scales and analyzing them. You must get out of your comfort zone (pentatonic scales) and start something new.

minor pentatonic scale already contains a dominant and a minor 3rd interval.

I believe he means stuck in a good way, that he likes the sound the scale makes.


Also, i think a huge problem people make is jumping to other scales too quickly, start learning more scales before they fully understand the scales they were previously learning.. before they're really comfortable with them.
