Hi, I started to learn the major scale yesterday, but my question is what key should I learn my scales in? whats the most important key if that even exists.

The best key to learn it in is in C, because there is no sharps or flats. However, once you know it in that key, you can apply the concept of the major scale in other keys.
If you play guitar, please don't waste your time in The Pit, and please instead educate yourself in the Musician Talk forum, where you can be missing out on valuable info.

Every key, all over the fretboard, and the theory behind it.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

I strongly suggest picking up a good textbook on harmony, but the crusade articles in the columns section will introduce you to the basics.

I'm a fan of Piston's Harmony, but any introductory harmony textbook (perhaps from a local University library, if there's one nearby) will do just fine.

Start with the C major scale, and go from there. Definitely E, A, D, G, B, due to you being a guitar player and all :P.
