I've been told that to from a chord, you must take the root note, 3rd, 5th and 8th of a scale to do it. Does this apply to all scales?

That is to form a major chord I believe.But you don't have to play the 8th. Play a 9th instead and you got yourself an add9 chord

Whether it is for all scales, I am not sure, but I thought it was only for the major scale.

What's the big deal with Gibsons, anyway?
I've heard loads of Gibsons being played before
and they don't sound any more special than
any other guitar.

It's not only for major scales, for example take the 1st 3rd 5th of the A natural minor scale and you have yourself an A minor chord.

But yeah, click the link that was posted before, that'll give you a good idea of chord construction.
