Hi

So when soloing, what other common scales can I use other than the pentatonic scales? Also, how do I know when to use them?

Thanks.

You can use whatever you like, whenever you like. Whether it will sound good in a particular context or not is up to you to find out based on experimentation

Learn the major scale and the minor scale.
Know what key the song is in.
For exampleif it is in Gmajor then you will be able to lpay the Gmajor scale over it same goes for minor scales.
Also if a song is for example in Gmajor you will be able to play Eminor or Eminor pentatonic (leaving theory out of this just count down 4 frets from the staarting note of the major to get to your relative minor)

I'm sorry but not knowing what scale you're giving him nor a key or anything is pretty bad advice, this is just some random shape of whatever.

It's a Bm scale. But the tab is upside down.

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.
