Iv'e being practicing my improvisation around the pentatonic scale and have learned it in every form around the neck, not the box you just learn in the beggining. Only question is, how do I use all these boxes together and how can I thus come up with new licks?

you mean the you learned all 5 boxes in combination? that's great, so you have use them in the right key. when a backing track is in C, then you can start with the first box at the 8th fret.

Forget the boxes, forget the patterns and instead start thinking of the notes and intervals they contain and the sounds they make.

Now you can be famous.

But yeah, you've got two options:

- Just learn to get a feel of the guitar and play as you feel, just like a lot of blues artists.

- Learn the theory of scales and notes and all that jazz.

I never stick to scales. I play whatever sounds good( start the solo/melody at the C note when there is a C backing track, I 'make up' my own scales.) sometimes a Cminor scale sounds better on a C backing track than a regular C scale. Just play whatever sounds pretty nice, that's how I do it.

Why a C backing track? I can play in any key by shifting along. Plus if you play a Gminor pentatonic and drop 3 frets your playing gmajor pentatonic...

or both


oh yeah and to play in the right key, learn the roots of the scale and where they are in the pattern and just play a pattern so that the roots are on the note you want (like C.) Most people go by the low E string root, so that they are in pattern 1, which is the most commonly used box. I usually use a mix of pattern 1, 2, and 4, and just use 3 and 5 as quick passing notes to make a smooth transition to the next pattern.
