View Full Version : Guitar Scales

I just started getting into jazz guitar and was wondering which are the essential scales I need to know.

I've been playing for a year, but I've mostly been playing chords (mostly Radiohead stuff). If i'm just starting out, which scales should i start with and where should I go from there?

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

major and its modes, blues scale, and maybe whole tone depending more specifically on what u play

but the most used are Dorian, diminished and major

Yeah get familiar with major scales and the dorian mode. Also learn harmonic minor and melodic minor.
