The waters have been slightly muddied, but that’s okay because it means we’re digging for buried treasure!
This pentatonic scale you speak of, I have never heard of. Further explanation, please!

Can’t tell if your kidding, but as a recovering “pentaholic” beware. ( as noted in an earlier thread in theory on a video) The scales are useful but can be a crutch. On the melody on a break I agree the best breaks are a mixture, but when at a jam sometimes it is what ever you can do. There is no real wrong answer, and different pros stray from the melody some don’t.
