I don't remember where I read this, but, when I was just starting out on bass, I was told that the minor penta. is a default all purpose scale that will sound good with any popular music. The standard major (ionian) scale was another "when in doubt" scale to suggested for use. Now, I have the minor pentatonic "box" shape hardwired into my playing hand. First, is this information accurate? Second, how can I break this habit? I am learning modes, trying to integrate that into my playing.
