Hey my band is going to cover "That Was A Crazy Game of Poker" this weekend and I don't want to learn the lead guitarists part note for note. It seems like it is an A Minor Pentatonic but it does branch off into things that are not part of the normal scale. Could somebody please help me with improvising this song. Thanks.

reds are notes that can be played in either place


minor pentatonic scale is just notes taken from aeolian

This is a hard concept for people to grasp... follow the chords. Forget about the scale, and play to the damned music.

I would suggest just improvising and following the chords but, how can you be so lazy as to not learn the lead part to one song for the cover?

Yea really thanks tenacious me. But have you seen the lead part? It's an 8 minute song. Plenty of solos. I memorized some of it but I just didn't want to be so constricted. Yea Corwinoid...theory be damned I'll just play to the chords thanks for the constructive post. Sorry I just wanted to know what scale it was . A Minor Pentatonic it is then.
