    Hello IGT !

    i've been playing guitar since around 1.5 years ..

    i've learnt notes, many chords, many strumming patterns .. i can play manyy songs .. but i don't know a bit of any scale .. !

    and i cant create solos of my own ..

    now i felt the need for that ..

    can somebody tell me some ways to learn scales ?

    especially major, minor and pentatonic scales?

    i'll be very thankful ...

    Since you can play many songs, it seems you already know scales. Just that you do not know that you know scales.

    Scale diagrams are available all over the internet, and it would just be an exercise in futility pasting them here again.

    With scales, the best way I have found out to practice is to put some backing tracks from guitarbt [dot] com, and play scales alongside them. It gives you a sense of the scale(root, 5ths) and also a sense of rhythm.
