That isn't the pentatonic scale but still, yeah, learn the Minor+ major pentatonic, and natural minor+major?

I know, i guess i didn't make it clear they weren't related
Pentatonics, Major scale, Modes.

Junior's usually at least a little terse, but he knows his stuff. I've always read his posts in a grouchy grandfather voice, a grouchy grandfather with a huge stiffy for alternate picking.
Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.
Start with the major scale, the minor scale, and the pentatonic scale (the major and minor ones). Those four scales provide the basis for everything a guitarist can and will play.
