I have been playing 5 months and I can't name let alone play any scales so what are some I should learn?
My Gear:
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Peavey Vypyr 30
DW Collector's 3 pc drums
Mapex Black panther snare
Sabian AAX/Zildjian K cymbals.

Look into the book "Total scales techniques and applications" by Mark John Sternal.It's packed with info on a ton of scales and was a great tool for me when I was just starting out.
