I've been playing guitar for a few years and been using pentatonic scales for soloing and improvisation. But i find that there are chord progressions where pentatonics dont seem appropriate. In Mr.Big's 'Just take my heart' solo part, can anyone tell me what scale i can use? in general, what scale do i use for that kind of progression?

tnx in advance

He uses the major scale primarily, and the blues later on. There's some modulation occuring (changes keys) during the solo, which may throw you off but it's pretty straightforward otherwise.

You'll find that most songs use the major, minor and blues.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

so it's not just one scale?


Well you could say it's all the major scale, and uses accidentals if you like.

But it's easier just to think of it as using the major scale and blues scale.

High five for being a Mr Big fan.
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

You should attack the chord tones. Then it won't matter what scale, cause your using the chord tones.
