      Pentatonic major. I recall it being a real eye opener realizing I could use major pentatonic in places I had been using minor pentatonic before.

        I learned Majors and natural minors first. Pents came later.

            I know only the major scale, but the pattern is the same of the minor and all the modes also.

              I just learned the extra notes that made a pentatonic minor scale turn into a major scale. Then I just fit the extra notes into solos.

                My teacher (GenNation on this site) really pounded the dorian into me. I think it's also called harmonic minor

                  The harmonic minor is a great scale to know, you can flow into it when in a minor scale to add that extra zing to a solo.

                    the blues scale... it's just one more note than pentatonic

                    and that's all the scales I know.

                      The title pretty much says it all.

                      I've tried to learn lots of different scales, but the pentatonic minor scale is the only one that I can play forwards, backwards, sideways and upside down in my sleep and use as the basis for solos.

                      What was the next scale that you mastered?
                      The next three forms of Pent. m (including 1 form of the "blues" Pent.), then Pent. M, then M (I'm up to 3 of those), 2 m scale forms...

                      ...only to realize most jazz guys outline chords with their improv most of the time, rather than using a scale form.

                      Here's how it works: learn your chords + extensions, then run up the form of the chord (i.e. GM would be E (3), A (3-5), D (3-5), G (3-4), B (3), e (3)). This can lead to some really cool runs as you move form one chord to another (use GM (fret 3)- am7 (fret 5)- D7 (fret 5) - GM (open) to start with).

                      Then learn your modes...
                      The least comfortable questions lead to the most important answers.

                                Blues scale is dead easy after pentatonic minor. Then straight minor and major for me.
