    Use a metronome or a drum machine when practicing. Always.

    Also, go find some old blues tunes to play to. Blues uses the blues scale most often. ;)
     

  4. for your information bud. I've been using the metronome with this clips its set to 100 bpm, and yeah its still a little chaotic at times.

    Try using the rest of the scale. There are 6 notes in this scale. Not trying to discourage you.

    That's right, these are what you are talking about, Derek. And these scales are each made up of 5 notes-not 6. Let there not be any needless confusion about such simple things.

    People always associate Pentatonic with Blues, which is the added sixth note: But I'm sure you knew. ;)

    You really wanted us to listen to this bad... didn't you :smug:


    Uhm, yeah if you did have a metronome going... you kinda ignored it, or just drifted a lot. Also, work on your consistancy of attack.
     
  14. Are you from south Lousisiana?

    My bad, I read it quick. Yeah, hehe, it's not even the pentatonic minor scale.
