Well if you know pentatonics and you can't say anything in a small amount of time...then you know how play through pentatonics but really don't know how to use pentatonics completely.

They're only five notes, if you can't play something straight and to the point, with only five notes... then your repeating yourself ;)

Check out this tutorial I'm doing at guitar.com's forums. It explains mixing major and minor pentatonic scales. By doing this you are also implying the Mixolydian and Dorian scales. And, it gets you think chromtically, not up and down successive half steps, but more like...I have 12 notes, what can I say with these given notes...how do I make music out of them.

This will get you playing more lyrical as opposed to scale patterny.

Look through this link. There's links within it for 40 lessons, and I have about another 20 ready to post. You'll find explanations, tabs, fretboard daigrams, audio for everything, etc...

This is the stuff I come to use after 30 years of playing guitar and about 40 years of playing music in general. And, if you think like this, you can solo over just about any style of music too.

There's a lot blues, rock, and chicken pickin stuff shown. But, I also show some Benson, Mclaughlin, Glenn Miller, and a bunch of other stuff...and show how all the things are really using only a couple of concepts...mainy based on sounds.

Enjoy, and have fun :)
