    One thing I started to do is pick a key, learn the scale formula, apply it to the key, and then bam. I got a new scale to play.

    So if the key of C is...

    C - D - E - F - G - A - B - C

    Then the minor appreggio scale (to my understanding) is... 1 - b3 - 5 - b7

    Then the notes will be... C - Eb - G - Bb

    So just look at it that way... I think it's pretty simple cuz you can apply it to any place of the neck.

    Edit: O' course I may be wrong, but this has been my understanding of the subject lately.

    ============================================
    U R right, "you can apply it to any place of the neck".

    I have only learned three pentatonic boxes (1, 3 & 5), which really are all the notes of all 5-boxes, because the boxes overlap.
    This allows me to keep it simple and apply this easier to all the keys.

    Depending what key you are playing, usually two of the three boxes repeat on the neck, one octave up or down (like A-minor shown below).
    I’m still trying to get the “2-3-multi-key” pattern down in all the keys (last-bottom guitar neck)

    Hey Dj Logan 33,

    I'm new to the site but have started learning guitar recently. I stumbled across your diagram for pentatonic scales (Pentatonic scale tricks)and must say it's the best most intuitive thing around. Only problem is the image quality is not that good. I seriously think you should try and market this as I would definitely be willing to spend money on this.

    BEFORE you do that tho :) Is there any chance you could upload/ send a better/ clearer copy???

    Once again, congrats on the great work.

    I dont do tab, but here are some vids of different ways to turn the minor penatonic and the Ionian major scale into lead riffs and runs.[​IMG] If you like that,go back to video 1 and start from there.
