need some help, im starting to play some jazz some common scales might help me out. im open to any other suggestions to help in my situation
just base everything around a major scale. it simplifies everything a lot because most of the others come from a major scale. you can use a mixolydian mode which is a major scale with a flat 7th step (over seventh chords), minor scales obviously, you can use the locrian mode which is basically a major scale starting a half step down. look up modes somewhere on the internet to learn how to use them.
Diminished Scale, Augmented Scale, Exotic Scales, and finally Modes. All Jazz is other that Blues scales
