You shouldn't think of it as "im using minor pent now" or "major scale now"....if you focus on what notes you are playing and how they fit over the chords you'll be better off....but of course you can mix maj/min scales and have it sound good

many times you will see this lick, which mixes both major and minor keys:


key of A major with minor third


H.O.

b-----------------
g---5-6-------------
d---------7--------
a-----------------

you know that you can play the minor shape in a major key by moving down three frets?

That in itself isn't an example of changing keys or combining scales though, even less so when presented out of context.

At best that's just using a passing tone to get to a scale degree, especially when considering it's a hammer-on.

Actually that's an interesting question. You can definitely mix them up. It works best in songs in which you would normally play lead using the major scale. You can then venture into the minor pentatonic (or preferably the blues scale) every now and again to add a different feel to it.

A good song to practice this with is "Knocking on Heaven's Door". Try the Guns n' Roses version. Start a lead in the G major scale (which is what Slash does in this song), then venture out into G minor pentatonic and go back to G major again.

Hope this helps,
Willem
