how to play guitar scales


Guitar scales are essential for learning to improvise, play guitar solos, understanding guitar theory and writing guitar and none music. You might have noticed that there are 2 main sets of scales, the modal scales or classical scales and the Blues scales. The names of the scales are a bit missleading in that both sets of scales are used in all styles of music and quite often are used together and therefore it is a good idea to learn both sets of guitar scales.
