Indeed. They're hardly useless.

I think the pentatonic is too common

I put my tobacco under my upper lip, just like anyone would do.

here's my thing. i'm not gonna bash and say don't use'em, but i have heard SOOOO many pentatonic solos/licks that they feel a little stale. a lot of guitarists use them really simply so it has kinda turned me off to them. but i will say gilmore, he can use them beautifully as can several other guitarists out there. alot of pentatonic solos i hear sound simply "stock" and boring imo. but thats just my 2 cents. i'm a big advocate of mixing them in with other scales and using them as a transitional scale between 2 like scales.

Here ya go...



...not wanting to take the piss or anything, but technically that's what you asked for. As far as knowing the possible scale permutations it's not something you can learn from tabs or scale charts. You need to learn the notes on the fretboard and the theory...the rules behind the scale's construction. Once you learn those you can play a scale anywhere on the neck, in any key, very easily.

you could see it in guitar pro. But yeah, like the seagull said "You need to learn the notes on the fretboard and the theory...the rules behind the scale's construction. Once you learn those you can play a scale anywhere on the neck, in any key, very easily.". Yay I quoted.

you could also, do the pentatonic modes, though i dont see a lesson on here, i may write one, i had them from my guitar teacher just be writing out what he wrote out in my book, but hey its always a good idea to learn scales, and harmonise them!

the pentatonic is not usless! the blues scale defines blues, and if you know how to use it, it sounds great. you can do some amazing things with the scale. sometimes in rock it can get overused, with the standard solo, but for blues, it doesnt get any better.

and to the ts, the pentatonic is, in relation to the major scale, 1, b3, 4, 5, b7

GD GC it's easier to think of it as the same as a scale, but without the 2nd and 6th note.

it would be a natural minor scale without the 2 and 6 i guess. yea that is a good way to think of it.

It's a lot easier - whilst scales are usually described in relation to the major scale a pentatonic is just a simplified version of a more complex scale. That being the case, it's easier to describe them in relation to the scale they're directly derived from.
