If you want to see just how far you can go being a lazy ass guitarist, look no further than Guns N’ Roses ax-man Slash. If Slash ever offers you a guitar lesson, run for your life; in fact, here’s a little taster of what you might get:
Slash starts out by saying that someone once tried to teach him the modes. He saw no use for them of course, and why would you when you can forge an entire career out of a half-assed approach to pentatonic scales?
Slash probably hadn’t played a scale since the early 90s, but here he demonstrates the two that he knows: the good old minor and major pentatonics. He goes on to mention the major scale, and a bullshit minor scale with a natural 6 in it; the real minor scale, according to Slash, has a b6 in it.
