I can play scales on a single string but how do you transfer that to multiple strings. Mind you i've only been playing for about to months. Break it down in to dummy steps

Just take a look at this site Lesson section. You'll find a lot about scales as well as a search on the Web.

Well, if you take, say, the 5th fret on the low E-string, then play the open A-string, that's the same note. So if you have a scale:

E---0-2-3-5-7-8--etc.

you can play:

A-----------0-2-3--etc
E---0-2-3----------


Every time you start to get out of position by playing a scale on one string, there should be a place to play that note on the next string, 5 frets back.

I don't really understand your question...

You can always play power-chords with ground-note on the scale-note

hey man hows it going? its been hot here in boston aint it? if you know the patters on one string just find the notes that your playing on other strings. or check out a website that teachs you scales. http://www.guitarists.net/scales/index.php or http://www.all-guitar-chords.com/guitar_scales.php should help you. the thing about guitar that 75% of guitarists dont realize or dont wnat to realize is you have to work to find the answers. there is short cut or easy trick. focus on learning a few major scale patterns in different positions and go from there. good luck

Learn the notes on the fretboard, learn the notes and intervals a scale contains then put the two together.

How i play major scales is a very easy way you move it to any fret on the bottom three strings.

E---------------1-3-4---
B-------1-2-4-----------
G-1-3-------------------

Like that would ba a Ab Major, kepp the same fingering but move it up a fret each and you'll go up a half step major scale.

There are multiple ways to play a scale. There's really no right/wrong way but there are standards that most people use. Just get familiar with where the notes are on each string and go from there. I'd learn the standards though...
