okay so first off, i know some s1k chords, have played on stage twice so far,  but...
Why is everyone suggesting that scales should be learned? How should i even use them?
You probably gonna need scales to improvise and write great solos all over the fretboard and create harmonic melodys much faster
If you want to play lead guitar, you're going to need scales. If you just want to play chords along with songs, then by all means, don't bother with scales and just do what you like.
Death to Ovation haters!
