ok so ive been playing for about 3yrs im not all that good but hey, i have never had a lesson in my life and everything i have ever played has come from hitting one note then hitting the notes around that to see if they sound good in succession to the previous note.(hope u know what i mean) and im wanting to learn a few scales that i can learn so i can try and make up a few solos. i cant read music so it will have to be in tab form.

any help much appreciated

C major pentatonic which has the same notes as A minor pentatonic. Then learn the major scale.
Besides being a guitar player, I'm a big fan of the guitar. I love that damn instrument. Steve Vai

Whats special about that? I know it's shawn lane, but it's still just the five positions of the pentatonic scale

You can't just ask what's a good scale to use to solo. You have something called
a Chord Progression that you have to consider.

That being said, the Minor Pentatonic in the key the progression will quite often
be a good place to start for a lot of rock songs. It doesn't matter if it's a minor or
major progression. It's a starting point anyway. You still won't really know what
you're doing, but it's better than random guessing until you can fill your theory in
a bit better.
