What's up everybody. I know some scales, but one thing I struggle with is knowing what scales are possible to use in what situations. Every guitar/scales book I have is great at diagramming the scales, but I haven't found one that demonstrates and gives examples of scale application. I mean, I know if the song is in E major you can use the E major (diatonic) or E major pentatonic scale, or the E minor pentatonic for a bluesy sound, but that's about it. Basically playing the scale of the key the song is in, but aren't there more possibilities? Anybody have any recommendations on books or online resources that can help me with this?

well over certain chords in a song you can use modes that apply to that function
