Weird, the Major pentatonic sounds more foreign to me.

comment Does Acoustic Blues Guitar Require Use of a Thumb Pick?
In the movie "M for Mississippi", a street musician uses a spoon for a slide. I don't think there are any rules.

comment How to decide whether my guitar is really bad
I'm not personally familiar with that model, but from doing a little research it does not seem to be bad for a beginner guitar. It's not going to compete with more expensive guitars, but it should be good enough for where you are at. Of course every guitar is different and your guitar might have some specific issues, but unless you are having a problem playing it, I wouldn't worry.
