Hi! I came up with a few ideas
First let's analyze this chord progression

First part: Am Em Am F
Second Part: Dm Am F G

The whole song is in a key of A minor
There are three different pentatonics that can be played over those chords:

A minor blues


D minor Blues



E minor blues





So what I want you to do is to create licks combing those three pentatonics in the positions I gave you!
Try to use parts from each and create short phrases!
Please let me know if you have any questions!

How is pentatonic combinations coming together?
I made assignment based on the solo you needed to create let me know how it goes and if you need any help or have any questions! Also the licks I made will fit your song as well! I did it to give you an idea!

Definitely not wanting to hijack this discussion but would you be able to explain to me or point me in the right direction to understand which scales can be played over which chords/chord progressions?

I have some basic knowledge... I (think I) understand the relative major/relative minor stuff. Before I really started to try to understand lead playing I probably would have just played Am pentatonic over the entire progression. Now that I know a little more, I would have guessed D dorian, E phrygian and A aeolian over the respective chords. Is that wrong because this is a minor song? Each of those modes has all the notes in their respective blues scales minus the blue note.

Also, you seem to be stating that it is also ok to play only a Dm blues scale over an Am chord (in an Am song)... or do they have to be mixed? Haven't tried it yet just trying to work out the theory.

I'm confused!

Oops! just figured out how this works! :-) please move this to another thread... my immediate goals are to become a better lead guitar player and to be more accurate with my sloppy hands. I'm learning scales/modes right now... currently I'm practicing pentatonic major/minor and major modes. That's about all I know about scales... I know how to build major and minor chords and a few others (just need to know the pattern).
