You should probably listen to Led Zeppelin or Guns N' Roses. It's like an alphabet. It won't make sense unless you make words or phrases out of it.

Why dob't you ask traditional oriental composers and musicians, seeing as the majority of their music is based on it? Or perhaps all the Blues players, because the blues scale is just an extension of the pentatonic. How about all the greats who have used it?

The pentatonic is an extremely versatile form of scale. That's all there is to it.

The pentatonic scale is one of those things every musician should know. The guitar is actually tuned to a G major/E minor pentatonic scale- G A B D E or
E G A B D.

There are enldess ways to arrange those notes and enless techniques of playing them. Pentatonics are special because they make sense and feel good to most people of western culture. But don't limit yourself to them, definitely explore other scales and styles. Also, if you listen a little more you might find that playing pentatonics well isn't rwally all that ez afterall.

You mean "My Chemical Girlpants"? tongue.gif

The Pentatonic is the basic framework of the major scale, it contains all the most important scale stones and by adding notes to it, it becomes incredibly versitile, know it, love it, use it.

Hmm...as much as I like calling them My chemical girlpants, they aren't really emo or pop punk and the songs they play are very well written with much more than just power chords and awesomelate 70's/ early 80's style power solos. They are quite good musicians that I enjoy listening to even more than I like making fun of their apperance. I say, make fun of the look but you really can't talk sh*t about the music. Take the song thanks for all the Venom, its opening riff is great, the solo is great and there are almost no power chords in the entire song. So please, try and be an informed sh*t talker in the future. yesani.gif
