"Lead Scales 1 and 2"

Has anybody heard of these. Prior to coming on GMC, I learned about the pentatonics and the CAGED system from the guy who originally came up with it(I think it was Bill Edwards - Can't remember his name at the moment) - I am sure many of you are familiar with this book - "Fretboard Logic" In that book, in addition to introducing the relationship between the 5 petatonic box shapes(Although he introduces them in their Major counterpart, not in Minor which is more common, but really the same thing except for the root), he introduces 2 Lead Scales(named Lead Scale 1 and Lead Scale 2) that take pieces from each of the pentatonic boxes and makes it into an easy to remember pattern that spans 9 frets starting on the Low E and going up to the high E, with the root note starting on the Low E and A strings. This was really easy for me to remember and helped me start right away with thinking outside the box, since there were consistent 3 note/2 note movements across the stings(Until you get down to the B string) My question is if any of you are familiar with these Lead scales, and if there are any leassons utilizing them, or do any of you use them as well. Now i know we could actually construct them from our boxes, but this was a set pattern that seemed to make sense to me. If there's not a lesson on them , it might be a good one for one of our instructors since I am sure some of them know it, and it forces us to move accross the boxes.

There are many approaches in learning process
and I guess that would be another one.
But main thing is to learn all notes on the fretboard,
locate root notes of each scales,
figure out whole-semi tone relations in certain(as many as possible) scales
and you're good to go. smile.gif

The Fretboard Logic series is good.
It tries to simplify guitar playing through a system of manageable shapes / rules - hence the name. smile.gif

QUOTE ("Steve Vai")
Start by playing something - a bend, a riff, a scale, a song - very slowly; if you make a mistake, start over; do this over and over, until you can play it flawlessly - and I do mean flawlessly - many times in a row. Next, gradually increase the tempo. Eventually you'll be flailing like a madman.
