I'm sure this is exactly the opposite of what you want to hear, but if you really want to gain an understanding of the concepts behind the scales, thus making you a better player and allowing you to utilize the scales as best as possible, you should research the scales yourself and learn about them.

all blues and classic rock use minor pentatonic sometimes wiith diatonic notes. there are different modes the best starting place is the aeolian mode. which basically if your take your four fingers and assign them each one fret with no spaces it starts on the root note and has a fingering pattern of 1-4 1-3 1-3 1-3 1-4 1-4. so i the key of a minor it would be
-5----8----------------------------------------------------------------------
-5----8-----------------------------------------------------------------------
-5----7-----------------------------------------------------------------------
-5----7-----------------------------------------------------------------------
-5----7----------------------------------------------------------------------
-5----8-----------------------------------------------------------------------
this to be played in the same key as the rythym if its in major play in relative minor. if you dont understand this then you need a teacher, no offense intended.
