    Hey everyone! i've heard that learning scales can come in very much handy especially in rock and metal guitar. So i've given it a shot. I've learned the 5 forms of the pentatonic scale and am practicing those. My question for you guys is what does learning scales actually do? cause whenever i look up tips on learning to solo everyone talks about learning scales. and what scales do you recommend i should learn? thanks!

    Learning scales is like learning different punches to throw, you gotta time em, and you gotta make sure that it has good impact.

    oh also key too, make sure you're in key, or something like that.
