Don't have to master music theory to make good music.
I think a lot of the Kirk random solos sound nice...

Although I got really disappointed by the live footage of him that I found.

Dave Mustaine probably doesn't know much more than the pentatonic. He rarely uses some other scales, but all in all, he doesn't "know" them, he goes with the sound he wants to create.

My point being a Megadeth fan is not to start another discussion about who's better, but I think Dave Mustaine's solos make more sense and are more diverse than Kirk's, fitting his songs better.

That's the thing, Dave can make what he knows sound good. Kirk can't even play the stuff he knows...Dave has feel. Kirk does not. There's a biiig difference.

I'm not saying pentatonics are bad at all. I'm saying, Kirk shouldn't try to play outside his pentatonic box, because most of the time when he tries to it doesn't sound very good (imo anyway). I mean, he can hardly make pentatonics sound good. The amount of "wrong" notes he plays are astounding.
