    I have a pretty comprehensive tutorial on mixing the two scales: http://lessons.mikedodge.com/lessons/AdvPent/AvdPentTOC.htm

    The lessons look at the many ways to combine a Major Pentaotnic and a Blues scale together in one scale to manage the Major and Minor sounds in many styles of music. The cover the styles of Blues, Rock, Country, Fusion, etc...For country you'll find a number of ideas ala Albert Lee, Pete Anderson, Ricky Skaggs, Steve Morse, etc...

    READ the Introduction as it will give you premise of the lessons and hopefully help you approach them as something you'll use forever. Then work through the 50+ examples/lessons. The lessons include audio, tab, diagrams, and explanations.

    They are completely free too, you don't have to sign up to anything, no ads...nothing except learning material.

    Enjoy! Let me know how it goes.

    IMHO, the material presented here is the single most significant thing to learn about Blues, Rock, Country, Funk, Fusion, etc.
