i am learning my scales and different keys. i was wondering if i am playing say in the key of C major, does that mean that i have to only play chords that are in the key of C and only notes on the C major scale. Also if i learn most of the major scales, will it help me be able to make up riffs better and which keys and types of scales would be the best.

Thanks if u can help

you will know what notes will sound good with what you are playing over instead of expeirimenting.
