Scales are basically a group of notes put together in an intervallic fashion so as to create a particular mood...or in simpler words a scale is simply a group of notes which sound good together and can be used to make solos
You can also have chord scales which are basically a group of chords which sound good together.
a C major scale consists of the following notes:
C D E F G A B.
Thus if u wanna play a solo in the key of C major u can use the C major scale with the above notes.
Now how do u create a major scale?
We gotta formula for that:
half intervals-(eg C to C# or F#toG or EtoF)
full intervals =2 half intervals
Similarly there is a method to derive chord scales:
So if u wanna make a riff outta a Cmajor scale u can use any of the above chords and make a riff.
Eg. C-Am-F-G..something like that
I hope that clears it up a little (dont forget to add a rep )
