Jean-Marc Belkadi has, as he's done with so many guitar approaches,
refined dozens of cool ways to use pentatonics. One thing he likes his
students to explore is stringskipping lines such as Ex. 12. And, as shown
in Ex. 13, Belkadi often handles string skips the smart convenient, “hybrid”
way by plucking the higher string with the picking hand’s middle finger.
Notice that this last example has a hemiolic three-against-four pick/
hammer/pluck downbeats), and it will retain its jagged unpredictable
sound... by Guitar Journalist Jude Gold

You don’t have to be an amateur guitarist to need guitar lessons. Even the pros
like a good schoolin’ now and again. And if you’re a professional guitarist, singer,
or actor in the Los Angeles area who’s fishing around for a guitar teacher,
it  probably won’t be long before someone refers you to Jean-Marc Belkadi. Like
his mentor, the late, great guitar genius Ted Greene, Belkadi is quickly emerging
as one of the most in demand and respected guitar instructors ..  in

GP’s favorite prodigal son Jude Gold delivered this knowledge. “The easiest
way to add zip to an ascending three-notes-per-string scale is to pick only the first
note on each string and hammer the two that follow. The problem with this highly legato
strategy, though, is that it results in a predictable and repetitive sound. Southern
California guitar sensei Jean Marc Belkadi has noticed a clever way to liven things up
without slowing youdown: Play every third picked note as the first note in an upward
sweep of the pick that drops you back down three strings. When you finally reach the
highest string (bar 2, middle of beat two), descend back down the scale as shown"

Offset tricks. You can play a composite blues scale over other chord
types, too. The trick is knowing how to offset the scale root in relation
to the chord root in relation to the chord root. (It can be tricky to work out
these associations, so be patient and go slowly.) For Instance, over a
minor 7th  chord, play the composite scale located a fourth higher. To
improvise over
Dm7 (D-F-A-C or 1-b3-5-b7), for instance, you’d play
G composite blues scale (G, A, Bb, B, C, Db, D, E, F). Notice how,
in addition to
Dm7’s chord tones, the G composite blues scale offers
G, Bb, B, Db, and E. If you relate these notes to Dm7, you get the 4 (G),
#5 (
Bb or A#), 6 (B), 7 (Db or C#), and 9 (E). EX.4 is a G  composite
blues line played against
Dm7. Guitar Player article here
