do you know what a key is?

figure those out.

there are no scales. they're implied in the harmony and should be treated as irrelevant - they'll only hurt you in the end. also, don't learn shapes, they're bad for you. learn the notes of the fretboard as well as interval relationships.

They're a really hard habit to break away from as well...

Just did a quick google and thoroughly reading and understanding this article is probably the best thing to do.

1) The Chromatic Scale

2) The Major Scale (After some tought i consider it bs advice when people say learn no scales to a beginner, since everything on western music builds on the friggin major scale.

So go ahead and learn the major scale on all 12 keys. (**** microtones)

But as the smart guys above said, learn intervals, learn scale degrees, learn notes, and imo it is worth to get to the point where you can name any scale degree cold within a second.

And it is now when the **** scales bit comes into play, since now you can relate everything to the major scale, think in intervals, hopefully think in notes and not rely on pregiven formulas. (im working on it too)

Actually, he started a thread in the Metal section like an hour ago, in which he bashed everyone who supported bands. Obvious ragenoob is obvious.

seriously ive been to this forum about a week and this question has been asked like 7 times.

You get used it, then most likely you will get fed up and leave MT after a few years like many others before you. Such is the circle of life Simba.
