its not so difficult it was the 2nd song i learnt there are a couple of nasty little chords in there but thats it try getting th right tab and learning tiny chunks at a time  it isnt impossible another simple one it blackbird by the beatles

Nope.  Just study and practice.

The "A minor pentatonic" is just one of five pentatonic patterns, and it's not specific to A minor.  It's the same pattern no matter where you play it.  Want to play C# minor pent?  Put your index finger on C#, and play the same pattern.  G minor?  Put your finger on G and off you go.

Given that there are only five patterns for each mode, there isn't really all that much to learn.  You could learn *every* major and minor scale by simply learning 10 patterns.  Learn their associated chord shapes, and you're really going to be smoking.

hey jerome thanks for the help but just a quick question what do u mean by the chord shapes associated with them is that like if u were playing a scale in A u need to learn all the different types of A chord on the neck or is there something a bit different to this or am i just being a bit thick?

i  play the pentatonic scale with a few exra notes calling it the blues pentatonic for example Am blues pentatonic would be -

E  5-8
A  5-6-7
D  5-7
G  5-7
B  4-5-8
E  5-8

and ont he way up it would be exactly the same only instead of playing 7-5 on the G ud play it 8-7-5

its nice to add the extra notes i think it sounds good and i practice it quite alot and also throw a jam track on and have a bit of a mess around with it
please correct me if theres anything wrong all your info helps me out.

I just recently bought myself a new electric relatively cheap (335 copy, only wanted it so i could muck around with it, without being worried of the guitar getting ruined) and am getting it modified due to everything electrical being so poor, im having humbuckers changed to P90'S, grover heads put on and having the plastic nut changed to bone , i also wanted a bigsby vibrato placed on it but was told i might have two holes left afterwards from swapping the bridge can anyone tell me of any alternatives i like the retro look on the guitar maybe bootlegger could shed some light. all help appreciated,

P.S oh and anyone who has any more ideas on other upgrades just throw them in to. maybe flashing lights in the f holes hahahaha
