Scales are basically a group of notes that have a distinctive sound. Depending on what sound you are looking for, you pick a scale and just make something up.

To get your started on the theory behind scales and chords and such, read every article here:

Help you get more into the music. In short though, you make music with scales. You just have to figure out how to really use them yourself.
