What are some good exotic scales to learn on the guitar. I already know the double harmonic minor scale. I have a lesson of it on YouTube. Just search hockey39boy39 or double harmonic minor scale lesson. I need some scales to learn that marty Friedman uses. I already know the harmonic minor also. What are some other good exotic scales.

Ps: could you also check out my sweep picking video and tell me how to improve I need help. I put the wrong video up anyway. I had a better one but oh well. That's how it usually sounds. I need MAJOR help with this. I was just fooling around and I bet you all can play it. My and my friend were just making a guitar world video LOL.

Anymore suggestions would be welcomed. Did I break a rule or something by talking about YouTube. If I did I'm sorry.

When he's soloing Marty Friedman doesn't think in terms of scales, watch this: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5777562536751428345&ei=OEROSrKyM4Lp-AaxvKS9Ag&q=marty+friedman+melodic+control it'll help you understand why Friedman sounds the way he does.

Edit: Watched the sweeping video, you need to slow down until it's clean and only speed up if you can keep it clean.

Yeah thanks. I really need to slow it down. I had it perfect but now I can't do it anymore. I went from slow to really fast. Friedman makes up his own scales that's why he is such a different style of guitar playing.

I'm a fan of Hungarian Minor and artificial scales. Also, try composing twelve-tone/atonal music.

If you can't do it clean and up to speed now you never really had it to begin with.

Freidman doesn't think in terms of scales at all, he uses arpeggios and notes that he knows work derived from the chords he's playing over.

As long as it takes. To a true student a year is as a day.
