Hello guys,

I want to ask one (maybe stupid) question. I'm playing a lot of heavy metal and genres like this but lately I have been improvising some jazz over backing tracks. I'm wondering what scale should I play over some chords. For example one backing track was in E. The rhythm played E7 chord I played E pentatonic scale (don't know if it fits the chord) and then the rhythm changed to A7 and I was still playing E pentatonic major but it sounded out of key and I than started to play E major scale. Should I change to A major scale or I will go out of key? So what scale to choose over what chords - for example the progression is C7 - Dm7. Should I play only C major over both of the chords or should I change the scale ?? :/ 

Thanks in advance!

In most cases I would use the E major scale, perhaps with the flatted 7th for E7.  Notes that are in the current chord being played will always work, but I tend to think in terms of a major or minor scale, although the truth is I don't think about a scale when playing.  I think about where I find the notes for the key by geometry.

How do you find them by geometry?

I have learned the positions for every key, or more accurately, I know the positions in 1 key and can move it up or down the fingerboard to change keys.  I don't know, or think about the note names when I am playing.  I just know where the notes for a specific key are located.  I play geometric positions.  I was already playing melody and improv solos before I had any idea of the notes or scales.

      I have 350€ and i want to buy an amp for home practising. I've done a little research and I've found some amps: Blackstar id 30tvp, marshall mg30cf, vox vt 20x, fender mustang 2 and peavy vypyr 2. I want my amp to have good distortion and a good clean channel. Which one should i buy? Can you propose me a better amp for the money?
