Hi
I can play in the E Natural minor scale very well up and down the fretboard. I was wondering which other scale I can play over this scale sort of to mix-n-match stuff. For example, while playing Em scale, i found that jumping to B minor pentatonic still sounded good. but A minor pentatonic sounded way-off.

thanks

If A Minor Pentatonic over E Minor sounds off to you, there's something wrong with your ear. A Minor Pentatonic contains only notes that are in the E Minor scale.

Other than that: Try E Minor Pentatonic, A Minor Pentatonic, B Minor Pentatonic, G Major Pentatonic, C Major Pentatonic, D Major Pentatonic.

Em=G

G major scales as well as Em scales will work.

you could also play the whole e natural minor scale and at the end of phrases what i like to do is throw in some harmonic minor. it gives it progression i think.

It's probably because he put the emphasis on A. That won't sound good over Em.

well it depends like you can i guess jump from the root note to the perfect fourth or perfect fifth and it would be fine... B is the 5th of E minor while A is the perfect fourth of E so yea it should sound right
