having a huge problem learning what scales go with what chords is there anything you guys can recommend so i can get this down? If you need anymore info ask. Thanks Alot!
You need to learn the 12 keys. And then you need to learn how chords are formed (what things like "augmented" and "diminished" mean). Once you know those 2 things, you can figure out what notes are in what chords, and then relate that to the different keys. So, for instance, if all the chords are made up of notes with no enharmonics (so C, D, E, F, G, A, B), you know that they're in the key of C and therefore you can use the C major (or its relative minor, A) to solo over the progression.

Learn the notes on the E string. Thats gonna be a big key to learning scales like the penatonic and the major/minor. I could say a whole lot more, but its one of those things thats kinda all jumbled up in my head: I know it, I wanna be able to teach you, but its just too hard to do with out a guitar in my hands to help.
but dont go strait in and use all of the relative minors, only certain notes will sound good over certain chords inthe relative minor
Ok thanks ill try to start learning that.
