I could be wrong, but thats how I view it.

since when is D in C major??

What you want to do is learn how scales are made up, and how you build chords out of scales. Then learn the scales in patterns all over the fret board, just don't always use the same shape, or else you will get to used to it and only use one. Try to learn a few scales all the way over the fret board (every note that is in it on every string) I find if you learn everything you can aboutwhy we use scales, and chords and figure out why some chords are called things like "Abm 7th" and things like that, it will be more useful than if you just know the names and shapes of scales.
