Should a guitar player learn all the pentatonic scales?
so far I have learned all the patterns of the e minor pentatonic scale. what am I supposed to do next? learn the minor pentatonic in other keys? what should I do next?
By the way, I’m already soloing a bit and it’s a lot of fun but I still want to learn more and more and more and become really good.
Learn the scale in every key. Unless you never play vocal songs you can’t do everything in one key. Also learn the major pentatonic scales, too, You already know G major the notes ar the same as E minor, you just have a G for the root. Major pentatonic is the most common in pop music.
The more you know the better you’ll play. Learn to skip up or down instead of just repeating all the notes in order and remember passing notes, the ones in a seven note scale instead of a five note pentatonic scale. Sprinkle a few in for color, particularly for the upbeat notes, The down beats are most important so tho notes in the five note scale work best there.
