The minor scale & modes get a lot of attention by most shredders. But let's not forget that they are only "half" the picture! Remember to practice, learn to use and incorporate the major scale, too, in your shredding.

Minor scales are frequently used when trying to express "moody", "dramatic", "determined" or in general "sad" thoughts & emotions in music. But major scales are invaluable when we want to express "triumph", "heroic", "bold" or in general "happy" thoughts & emotions.

When making music these are simply two different sets of tools. Make sure you are able to use both!
