So basically, I've been playing guitar for a couple of years now, and the whole time the only scale I've learnt to solo with is the Minor Pentatonic. So I was hoping you guys could recomend me a few more.

I've taught myself, so I never had a teacher to tell me these things.

Well, if your interested in learning new scales, I would highly recommend some Modes.
- Ionian
- Dorian
- Phrygian
- Lydian
- Mixolydian
- Aeolian
- Locrian

And perhaps maybe the Harmonic minor (I love this scale, has a very exotic sound to it).


However, i would also suggest learning some theory. This well help you out alot with scales

I think he should start out with the major scale first... Then maybe some chordal theory. Heh... Telling him to learn how to solo with modes is like throwing a three year old into 12 feet (about 4 metres for you metric bastards) of water and saying "alright, swim!"

Whats the point in learning new scales if you cant apply the ones you know? You need theory man.
Agile Al-3000 prestige, Carvin V3 half stack, Fender 75, Line 6 spider 112, roland microcube, JT serpent, JT Sg Custom, Washburn D-100, PODXTL, Monster Powerconditioner, George L's cords
ALL MY POSTS ARE *MY OPINION* GO HOME TROLLS!
