Modal Madness for natural minor (don't get intimidated by the speed, there's plenty of slower backing tracks) and for example Gabriel's lesson on pentatonic shred for the pentatonics... for example. There's plenty of fish in the sea, I mean, plenty of lessons at GMC. smile.gif

Here's some brutal penta patterns

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Killer...kk-Wylde-Style/

Here's some useful shapes (bear in mind Zsolt tunes to D so just shift the shapes down a whole tone to be in tune with him or the backing)

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/modal_...xtended_scales/

When you've got your head around the basic 3 note per string shapes that are univeral, you can apply the to any scale and they'll work. It's only when you break from the normal interval pattern in modes like Phrygian, harmonic minor etc that you'll have to adapt the shapes to account for the stretch from the flattened second to major 3rd (but don't worry about that now if you're jut concentrating on minor & pentatonic)

Ah, you beat me to it wink.gif

P.S. SHred is just a term that encompasses any really fast playing. Don't forget it doesn't all have to be alternate picking either.. legato is also useful and you can often nail even quicker runs that way if your fretting hand is quicker than your picking hand smile.gif

question about the Modal Madness
for 3 notes for string should I use 1,2,4 or 1,3,4 fingering , i normally go for 124 but sometimes the ring finger is right there n sometimes it wants to use the ring finger

This is a GREAT point. Listen to your hands as you go and they will try to tell you what they want to do. Sometimes, you have to force them to do something a certain way for their own good, but many things come down to personal feel. Does it feel right to play it this way? Then it's probably ok unless it's something seriously bad in terms of form.
