Hello from Boston Massachusetts. I play guitar, a little mandolin, and sing.

Guitar Playing, Technique, Theory / Question on those Hendrix chords
« on: March 08, 2011, 02:30:20 AM »
Okay...when you play the Hendrix chords video....and that great E7#9 chord....and then those 2 bar chords...in key of E, why is it that in this progression, the G major chord works so well....the chords are E7#9, G, and A.

In the major scale key of C the minor 6 is A minor, so you can play the A minor pentatonic scale over a C major progression, correct? 

Now what about minor scales. I understand that with the minor scale the 3rd note of the scale is the major third, so if we are looking at the A minor pentatonic, the third note would be C#, correct?

I have a diagram of this in E minor which shows box one of E minor pentatonic and the G major pentatonic scale are the same notes with different roots - E minor pentatonic root is on the first note and G major pentatonic is on the 2nd note. 

I don't know if I have been playing notes in the G major pentatonic when playing the A minor pentatonic when improvising.  I assume I would just be bending and such at different places.

Are there any other scales that I can use when playing blues?
