Marty Friedman's scale's of choice are;

Fifth mode of harmonic minor (also known as Spanish Gypsy and a million other names):

I - bII - III - IV - V - bVI - bVII (are the intervals in roman numerals)

which when played in C, the notes are:

C - Db - E - F - G - Ab - Bb

or along one string, with an open string being the root note:

0---1---4---5---7---8---10---12

Japanese Kumoi pentatonic

I - II - bIII - V - bVI

C - D - Eb - G - Ab

0---2---3---7---8

Hope that helps.

both. and learn how to spell before trying to mock.

Wasn't mocking. You want new scales? I would suggest starting with modes to give you an understanding of melodic soloing as opposed to 'widdling' the pentatonic which is what you gave the impression of wanting to get away from. Understanding the relationship between all seven modes of the major scale will open up a zillion new improvisational doors.

As an exercise' date=' learn all your scales 3 notes per string, then pick [b']each string down, up, down i.e sweeping through to the new string onto a downstroke (as opposed to alternate picking: up,down,up,down,up,down)
