There are no right and wrong scales to learn, any will do. If you like metal you should learn a few pentatonic scales.

1987 Fender F-210 Acoustic

Ibanez TS-9
Ibanez AD-9

it might be easier to grasp the theory if you just start with the major and minor scales that worked better for me

As a beginning.

Metal isn't all about the pentatonic...look at metal with neoclassical influences; that uses a lot of less-recognized scales such as the Hungarian minor scale.

The pentatonic minor is a good start, though...

if you learn how to read scale in box formation it's easier to memorize (it is for me anyway)

start with A major in a positions same with A minor (blues) pentatonic once you learn all the positions you can move them around for different key's
