    I'm a different guitarist on a different guitar, but Marcus, I like to do what you're doing there: choose a scale and freely explore the key that comes from it--two keys if you count the relative minor--up and down the fretboard. Thanks for posting this.

    Well actually, for D here is an outline, there is a whole lot more than just the major and relative minor

    7 note D major scale & modes
    D E F# G A B C#

    6 note hexatonic scale
    E G B F# A C# = E F# G A B C#

    5 note minor pentatonic scale (3),
    E minor pent
    F# minor pent
    B minor pent

    4 note arpeggios all 7,
    Dmaj7 Em7 F#m7 Gmaj7
    A7 Bm7 C# m7b5

    3 note major triads (3),
    D F# A
    G B D
    A C# E

    2 note dyads or interval sequences

    Learn this essential stuff then put it aside and just play.

    That's very interesting, ASATKat, especially for me that the minor pentatonic scales for the 4 and 5 are diatonic for the key scale; I'll give that some thought and practice. Thanks for spelling it out.
