hum what you mean sound false??
I will find a teacher soon

Should sound good when complete. Suggest you don't over-process the vocals.
As ever, solutions and opinions are presented here with no reasoning behind them given.
The key to understanding this solution is to know what the problem was to begin with! It would seem that the problem for TS was a lack of understanding about the relationship between notes and intervals and chords; a theory problem, which can absolutely be overcome by effective practice and application of knowledge. This time TS has managed to overcome it by using the keyboard to gain a different perspective on the same thing, since it's all theory irrespective of instrument.
Physical ruts again require practice, although it will almost certainly mean a different kind of practice than you're doing already. Physical ruts absolutely happen because your practice isn't right in some way.
Creative ruts... well that's a whole massive thing that I really don't want to get in to. There are so many different things that can factor in to a creative drought it's pretty crazy.
Again: understanding solutions requires understanding the problem. You're all talking about things that really have had no real explanation, since the word "rut" can mean so much to different people.
What.. no it's not. EVERYONE gets in a rut sooner or later. Practice habits have nothing to do with it
The guitar doesn't make music, neither do the scales - the guitarist does.
Your problem is simply that you're assuming that the guitar is inherently different to every other musical instrument and it isn't.
And that's not what you do, so you'd be right and are indeed approaching things the right way. Like I said, the guitar doesn't play the music, the musician does. What you've described there is indeed a backwards way to approach it and not really helpful when it comes to developing as a musician.
Every fret on every string on your guitar makes a sound, that's all a scale is - a collection of sounds. When you play music you have sounds you want to make, how you make them is up to you - with your mouth, with a piano, with a clarinet, with a guitar. The instrument doesn't matter, the creative process is still the same. Knowing a scale and the intervals it contains is helpful as if helps you remember sounds.
If someone describes a sound as "well it's the fifth fret on on the D string then you go to the the fourth fret on the G string." that's incredibly convoluted and not the easiest thing in the world to process, however if you tell me it's a major third then I know exactly what you're on about. Likewise if I know what that interval is called it's also a lot easier for me to use it myself when I'm playing. I know what it sounds like, I know how to describe it and, thanks to a bit of basic scale knowkledge, I know how to find it on my guitar.
So to answer your question people don't learn scales to "tell them what to play", they simply help you find the notes you've already chosen to play.
