so ive been running through scales, i memorise them and they become pritty simple, but i hear there supposed to help my improvisation.

how is it meant to help?

at the beat it play the scales it sounds nothing like a solo ( 220 BPM )
i cant find a metronome that goes higher, so i presume im not meant to go faster

or am i meant to?

please help.

thankyou

simply playing the scale faster isn't improvising.

a scale is basically the notes that are going to sound good when you play them in the appropriate key, and you don't need to play them in order for it to work out.

Make sure you're learning the scales, not just fingerings, positions, boxes and any other term such as those.

I seriously doubt you're going light speed here... Are you separating the beats into 16 notes? ....Or even 8th notes?

And for me, the only way to get better at improv is playing with other people. Just jam with somebody. Or buy a loop pedal.

practicing scales won't help you improvise...UNDERSTANDING scales will.

The important things about scales are the notes they contain and how they sound together, not where you put your fingers.
