For me too, it's all about the boxes and shapes, you just kinda know where the note are that resolve the sound and break the tension when moving outside the 'chord' tones. I've always based all noodling on the pentatonic and extensions. Rock or blues, scale starts (index finger) on the key, country or 'happy feel', pinky is on the note of the scale.

I'm not a fan of major keys, so it's a great way for me to get out of my comfort zone.
Nicely played, but couldn't take my eyes of that tele. What's the action on it like?. I have to get my squire sorted the action is terrible, and has been tough to play. I've always wanted to get a fret job done, and proper set up.

If you're getting out of your comfort zone, you're growing and that's a good thing, right? For some reason I thought you had the 50s CV Tele, though.

I got it new, and the action might be high to many, but it's perfect for me. It's a Squier CV Custom. Except for a PRS, the frets are the best I've ever felt.

It's my Squier Strat that's a 50s, and it's perfect for an early Knopfler sound. I can't make up my mind whether to throw in the GFS pups I have in.

I wasn't crazy about the stock pups, but yeah, I'm glad I decided not to experiment with GFS and went for the "Kotzen" pup choice. The Squier is arguably more versatile in tones than my PRS.

The only thing about this tele I have is the frets are quite worn. I don't think they fit good qaulity steel on there. I know fret wear happens, but these feel soft. Add the horrible action, and although it's been great to play it needs attention. I don't have the time or know how to set it up correctly, and finding someone in my area to do the work is not easy...Trust wise at least.
