Quick question for everyone, how long was it before you could play scales, and there different modes with arpeggios fast and clean without thinking about it, im asking because i learnt c major and its modes and can play them all but i still cant solo fluidly form one mode to the other and now im learning pentatonic scales and its modes and arpeggios for a minor, to me i feel like im learning all these bits and pieces but i still cant put it all together so it sounds like a musical piece, so im asking when did it click for you or when did it all start just sounding good.

the time it takes it's proportional to the time you practice. And it's not only to play it, but to use it, while improvising or writing a song.

The way of being able to play something is practicing., If you practice enough, you will play it in no time.

Also, on how to aplly this stuff: you must learn songs to see how your favorite artists or bands use this sceles and modes you are learning, and you can apply them in your own things. Also, learning songs is fun, guitar is not just about learning a lot of stuff, but having fun doing something you like.

Hey HarrySidhu - How you doing!

Here's something that works for some people, and it sure worked for me. It sounds SO simple but most people don't bother, but it's what got me good real fast. Play SLOWLY, really slowly, and practice taking out any movements that shouldn't be in your playing. Play each scale 8 times without making a mistake back to back at 60 bps, i.e., 60 notes a minute.

When you've done this a few times notch up the metronome or drum machine to 72 then 82, 92, 112 etc. And EACH THIME make sure there are no unnecessary movements.

Remember, guitar playing is an athletic skill so get your core technique right and you'll get fast real fast.

Let me know if this helps and how you get on.

You can't solo because you don't understand what it is you're trying to solo over, how and why scales work and when to use them.

Like I said in your earlier threads you're getting way ahead of yourself and trying to do stuff that requires months, if not YEARS of groundwork and musical experience. Learning a load of patterns means nothing and you HAVEN'T learned modes yet, you've just been taught the major scale several times over and that's the fault of your crappy teacher.

Stop rushing and go back to the beginning because at the moment you're going nowhere fast.

Yeah I'm self taught as well. I took a class once ... just a prerequisite so I can get into Music Theory...that teacher was wack...he would make us play the same chords over and over and everybody there loved it..the second I doubled the strumming or put a lil solo in the mix he yelled at me to stop...and that was probably why I taught myself.
