Is it just me but does his tone and playing style totally not suit that backing track?
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

Haha thanks for the replies, but what I would like to know is which are the scales I can use over the backing track (the less the better), I don't really care about the solo of that video and what scales he used, it was just an example.

Here is the backing track without the solo. It's the "Funk" one.

The backing track is E7 A7 E7, then a Gm7 C7 vamp and then it goes back to E and fades out.

E minor pentatonic will work over the first chords (you could also try playing some major thirds over the chords, ie G# over the E7 chord and C# over the A7 chord). Then it modulates to Gm. G minor pentatonic or G dorian will fit the chords well.

Thanks for the reply. So I guess I could play E mixolydian over the E7, A mixolydian over the A7 and G dorian over the Gm7 and C7.

You just made up some words that sort of relate to that. Sure it might have been funny, but don't expect anyone to actually understand what you were getting at exactly, especially a beginner.

Agreed. And I generally like wanky fusiony stuff.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

@sickman: true true, that is a good point, I was going from what level the video was at, Vamping 7th chords and lots a noodling, so I assumed TS had some sort of grasp other than beginner level, and just wanted some direction as to what was being covered exactly, ie: scales/Key... which is what he asked (key), but yeah point taken! thanks!

Edit: @sickman: ...and how is Alan's or Dave's comments helping BTW?

To be fair, you can hardly blame him for not going back in time to retroactively critique my comment.

It's hardly like he could anticipate I'd make a silly comment.

Oh wait...

They're not helping but they didn't claim to be helping either. You said Maggara's comment was the same as yours, and you implied it was redundant, which it most certainly wasn't. Do you really think that someone wouldn't take more information from Maggara's comment than they would from yours?

Anyway, TS is asking for help regarding scales to play over this. Which actually means that TS isn't at the level the video is at.

No, you're not alone. He's a solid player, but his style of playing doesn't sound right over that style of progression.

I think my first reply was very informative funk you very much... just not written in the manner YOU would like... and the same could be said regarding Maggara's comment following mine... what's your point???

That's unfair. I'd say a good 2% (rounded up) of my posts are helpful.

Wow! He is on Venus while the track is on Mars. More ears, less sweep arpeggios.

All I did was agree that your post wasn't directly answering the OP, and pointing out that it wasn't supposed to either. Actually if anyone here isn't helping the OP in any way, it's me.

Anyway guys, sorry for making a fuss out of tonibet's stuff. Carry on.
