Does it have to be Am pentatonic? That's a pretty lame scale. If it were just in the key of A, I would be able to have a lot more fun with it.

but it's universal in every different type of music, so i thought that it would be easier, think of it as the block legos, they're not as nifty as the special looking pieces, but you can still do some cool things with it.

Can we at least add notes into the pentatonic scale to give it feeling? I mean, there's literally almost no emotion in the notes.

NDM1, I like your choice of notes, but to be completely blunt, you're just not smooth enough.

I'm not as good a guitarist as you are, I have to admit - I'm not fast enough - but your notes have breaks in between, as do the patterns you're using. That's your problem, and I'm sure you could be a good guitarist, were you smoother.

Well actually this was something new i was trying. Usually my solos dont have a lotta breaks in them like this one does but i was told to actually try and use more breaks.

uh, the name is derived from it being Am Pentatonic, and therefore pentagrAm. I am amazing with words. Anyway, ignore the count in and the basic absence of a beat.

Yes, I agree. The Am pentatonic scale is very....



















pedantic! Whoa, I almost made pun!

That chord progression was seriously oarsom. Nice soloing too. I seriously need to start learning how to make my own stuff this summer.

It's all a matter of phrasing; creating a melodic line and then playing something off of that to "speak" back. If you've ever had a guitar teacher like mine, you will hear them rave about "making a conversation," and that's exactly what you want to do. It can be as simple as playing something, then playing it back again with a different note, or it can start on the last note and be completely different, etc. All that matters is that it resolves the phrase that originally used.

It's easier to teach in person, but I hope this somewhat helped. as vague as it is.


ALSO: I'm gonna repost mine tomorrow because I fixed up the volumes and stuff so it sounds cooler and it feels like there's less going on.

I modified the file of my original with a few volume differences and plenty of trippiness by changing the speaker settings around on it so things play on one side of the speakers and stuff. It's complete insanity, so here's the link again for all of those too lazy to scroll back up (i.e. all of you).
