Now this is wierd, but not a mistake.  Sometimes when finishing a phrase, I'll hammer on and pull off on the B string between the 5th and 6th fret.  Then play the 6th fret on the G string ( C# / Dd ) then back to the B string 5th fret ( E ) and close it on the D string 7th fret ( A ).  It's out of tune a bit, but it's quick and adds an exotic sound that I like.

No.  You are right. I got confused when I translated the paragraph.  The second half starting on the 12th fret is ok, but the first part starting on the E string is like Redman said.

    5 - 7 - 8 - 10 - 12 - 13 - 15 - 17
    5 - 6 - 8 - 10 - 12 - 13
4 -5 - 7 - 9 - 10 - 12
     5 - 7 - 9 - 10 - 12
     5 - 7 - 8 - 10 - 12
     5 - 7 - 8

I think that is correct now.  Sorry if I led anybody down a wierd track.

Now the 
12
9-10-12
is one that I do and that I like. I only know this because I played just a minute ago. I`ll have to actually look at where I`m at on the board to put them down. I haven`t done anything creative (aka challenging and /or original) in so long I just follow what I`ve done for years over and over. Man! I need a challenge. This just may be what I need to go again!

I've sometimes used a 'scale' that is like:

5 - 7 - 8
5 - 6 - 8
4 - 5 - 7
5 - 7
5 - 7 - 8
5 - 7 - 8

I think... hmm, but I try this scale of yours. :)

Ok G'Dude.  This is like the ladies tradin' recipes.  Now you gotta give me somethin'.
[TIMBONI] Saturday, June 28, 2008 8:22:25 PM 
Those are just basic shapes.  The key is to introduce the flat 5 note into the Natural Minor Scale to sleaze it up a bit.
[TIMBONI] Saturday, June 28, 2008 8:21:16 PM 
By string, starting on the low E at the 5th fret :

5 - 7 - 8
5 - 7 - 8
5 - 7
4 -5 - 7
5 - 6 - 8
5 - 7 - 8

Thats the base.  You can also tie it together with the A on the 12th fret, 5th string starting with the pinky :
 
12
9 - 10 - 12
9 - 10 - 12
10 - 12- 13
10 - 12 - 13 - 15 - 17

Oh, one other thing.  One of the coolest scales, in my opinion, is the combination of the Blues Scale and the Natural Minor Scale.  The simple Blues Scale is 1-4,1-3,1-3,1-3,1-4,1-4.  Try this one.  Let's say we start on A on the 6 string.  So, by fret, it goes 5-7-8, 5-7-8, 5-7, 4-5-7, 5-6-8, 5-7-8.  With the addition of a little tail.  If you start on the G string with the 4-5-7 you can then slide up to the 9th fret and finish it off with the blues scale on the B and E strings with 8-10, 8-10.
Very George Lynch.

One little trick that may come in handy.  You can really turn the tables on people if you understand that if you are in the Key of G major you are, in essence, also in the Key of E minor.   Three steps ( frets ) back and that's the relative minor key.  Now that's when you start to make "Mary had a little lamb" sound like "Get on your knees and pray" !

Aha, so basicly if Im playing a certain scale with a root in (for example) G, then Im playing in the key of G. Well, that isnt all that complicated.

Not that I want to know all about music theory (which is as shitty as it is boring). Its just that the "keys" stuff is mentioned a lot in tabs, and I wanted to know whats it all about.

Thanks guys.

Think of keys as families of notes.  Keys are a group of notes that work well together.  Around this scales are created.  Of course there are always exceptions to the rule.  In many fusion / jazz applications the players will intentionally use notes that are technically "out of key" to create the effect of tension in the music or to lead the listener's ear to an intended "key change".  It sounds really technical, but it's not.  If you forget everything I just said and just play what you think sounds good, there is probably some place in music theory to justify it.  Music theory is almost as full of shit as psychology.  Just learn the scales and try them.  If it sounds good, go with it.  If it sounds like shit, move on.

Theory is a little above my head,but the key is the root that a riff or passage is based on.

Ive got a question for those who know music theory a bit.

What does it mean that something is in a certain "key"? I hear a lot of time how certain songs or parts of songs are in the key of E, E minor, A, ect. What is that all about?
[guitardude] Saturday, June 21, 2008 10:47:57 PM 
Got my boys Mini-V really set-up well. Great action for a tiny little guitar.The kid has been playing for hours everyday since I give it to him.
[Redman] Friday, June 13, 2008 5:48:41 AM 
Ah, I want Kahler 2200 to my Flying V... want it so bad. Would really make the guitar perfect.

I have the Seymour Duncan Distortion in the bridge and the Vintage Staggered in the neck of my BC Rich.I just rewired the guitar on Tuesday ,had a ground hum. All is good now.I love those ADA preamps,they are so versatile!!
Good choice on the power amp also. A tube is a tube,but the wiring in the chasuis is what makes the difference. Peavey has some grat stuff.i`m constantly watching E-bay for an older Script model 5150 head.
You mentioned the Classic 50, alot of older players seem to like that amp, Never played thru one that I can remember. The newer Valve Kings do have a good vintage tone ,but with a modern edge when using that A/B control on the power amp.

Cool links Guitardude. Yes, that is why i love tubes. THey have a ramp or sag when they are sounding on and off.  I am using An ADA mp1 And a PEAVEY CLASSIC 60/60 or 120. I never got into the MESA BOOGIE. I went with Marshalls. I like the passive pickups I use THhe screamimhg dempn on a couple of my axes. It is
a mid output pickup. I dig a lower input voltage concept, then boost it in the Amp.
