Angus Young Technique

I will teach you about two of the major techniques he used in his solos. Angus Young was a master of flawlessly switching from the minor pentatonic to the major pentatonic. The major pentatonic scales he used were(fingerings only):

E-|X-|--|--|X-| B-|X-|--|--|X-| G-|X-|--|X-|--| D-|X-|--|X-|--| A-|X-|--|X-|--| E-|X-|--|--|X-|

So in the key of A it would be:
A Major Pentatonic
e-|--|2-|--|--|5-|
e|14|--|--|17|
B-|--|2-|--|--|5-|

B|14|--|--|17| G-|--|2-|--|4-|--| or an octave higher: G|14|--|16|--| D-|--|2-|--|4-|--|

D|14|--|16|--|
A-|--|2-|--|4-|--|
A|14|--|16|--|
E-|--|2-|--|--|5-|
E|14|--|--|17|
You can apply this to any minor pentatonic scale. For example in the solo to Highway To Hell:

He starts out in the A Minor Pentatonic.
e-|----------5-5-------------------------------------------------------|
B-|----------5-5--------5--5---------5--5--------5--5-----------5--5---|
G-|-7^(9)---------7^(9)-------7^(9)--------7^(9)---------7^(9)---------|
D-|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A-|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-|--------------------------------------------------------------------|

Right here he switchs into the A
e-|------------------------------------|----------------------| Major Scale.
B-|-7^(8)------------------------------|----------------------|
G-|-7^(8)------------5-----7--5^(7)----|----------------------|
D-|---------------------7-----------5--|-4^(5)----2-----------|
A-|------------------------------------|-------------3--0-----|
E-|------------------------------------|----------------------|

hold bend

Now he goes back to the A Minor Scale.
e-|-------------5----------------|---------------------5--------|
B-|----------------5-------------|-------5---5-----------5------|
G-|-2----4^(6)--------(6)^4--2---|-------5---5------/5-----5----|
D-|------------------------------|-/5--0---7---7-5------------7-|
A-|------------------------------|------------------------------|
E-|------------------------------|------------------------------|

e-|-------------------------------------| B-|------11-----11----------------------| G-|-/12-----12--------------------------| D-|-------------------------------------| A-|-------------------------------------| E-|-------------------------------------|

As you can see he goes back and forth very naturally.
