Tell him to learn some Metallica. Minor pentatonic is basically all that Kirk uses.

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.

Believe it or not but most of the tapping sections in well pretty much every single van halen song. What Eddie is doing, is he's playing I think an a minor pentatonic but he's tapping the root note and pulling and hammer onto the other notes. A lot of songs that use tapping tend to rely on the pentatonic scales.

Tell him to play the pentatonic scale on a single string and you'll see what I mean.

And for some songs that use the pentatonic scale try eruption and ain't talkin bout love by Van Halen.

any songs in particular?

No just anything he likes. The black album I think would be a good place to start. Nothing too difficult.

My guitar teacher is making me learn a Miley Cyrus solo only for the sake that it uses pentatonic 0.o

There are sooooooo many songs that use pentatonic. Why he would choose a Miley Cyrus song is beyond me


At least use something cool like crazy train, eruption, or stillborn by Black Label Society.
