Songs can change scales, sometimes it sounds good, sometimes it sounds off. If a backing rhythm was on a different scale than another rhythm played at the same time, theres a possibility of hitting dissonant notes... and if you arent into noisecore, thats usually a bad thing.


When it comes to leads over chords, I find what works best is the scale of the root of the chord. Eg. play E scale over an e chord, and g scale over g chord and so on. It works, and requires almost no thought when you're soloing, because none of the notes will sound 'off'.

I was very bemused as a youngster watching the Golden Girls when Blanche said she was going to "spank her fanny" I had visions of a geriatric vertical bacon sandwich red and bruised from being disciplined!!!
