does anyone know a sort of definitive site for scales? or perhaps a lesson on here? Maybe somebody can just answer me here. I'm just starting to learn scales, and I've been using this lesson - http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/lessons/for_beginners/types_of_scales.html and it says all of the scales are in G scales, so my question is how do I figure out different scales?

Do I just start with like say, an A note on the E string and follow the same pattern and that makes an A scale?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

yeah, it also depends on what mode the scale is in and what position your playing it in

I used to have a book mark to a great site but I got a new computer so I lost it, look for all chords and scales on google, I think that's how I found it. Google's somethin else you know, a little thing they call a 'search engine'.

yeah, I have heard of that thing. And I have looked around to no real success as of yet, but I'll try your term suggestion.

Since you learned the scales under a key of G I assume you learned the modes of that key.

Yes, you can take what you learned and move it to a different key and pay attention to your root positions. If you root on the 6th string and move to different position but still root on the 6th you can keep the patterns the same. If you move from 6th to 5th string (or 4th) your pattern will shift up 1 fret while you hit the B and E string.

Read Josh Urban's Crusade articles in the columns section - you really need to spend some time learning and understanding what a scale actually is before you try to learn any.

thanks a lot man! these articles seem really helpful... I wasn't really trying to skip ahead or anything, I really am a student of the guitar, it's just tricky sometimes to know where to start when you don't have a teacher...

don;t worry about it, that IS the hardest thing....there's so much information out there it's hard to know what to learn first.
