You didn't understand what we meant with "guitarists listen with their eyes". It means that guitarists buy an amp because it has tubes in it. It has nothing to do with the looks, it has to do with...

My point was that it has a context. Not a historical context. I mean, rhythm, melody. It is a whole piece - the context is the song. Playing a single chord is playing a chord out of context (I mean,...

^ Scales don't even give you ideas. A scale is not going to give you a certain sound - it's about the way you use the notes. And you learn to use the notes by listening to how other players use them.
