VERY SIMPLE IMPROVISING

If you know the Major Key of a song, and you want to impprovise and the only choices you have is to use the Major or Minor Pentatonic or Blues Scale, how would you determine whcih scale to use just knowing the Key of the song??

THXXX in advance.

    I'm afraid it's much more complicated than just the key to the song you are playing. You need to know the chords of the song. Each chord can require a different scale. I suggest you find a teacher if you are really serious?
