There is more nonsense writen about guitar than any subject I can think of.

It's pretty fundamental really. You play what you hear in your head.

It's no good taking bits of scales and mode fragments and pasting them together and expecting them to sound like a solo any more than you can cut and paste bits of newspaper and make it sound like Shakespeare.

Play a few chords and hum or whistle a solo over them. Did you think about scales? Modes? Or did you just whistle what you heard in your head?

Well guitar soloing is just the same as whistling (or should be).

Learn to play what you hear in your head - and you have freedom.
There's only one scale worth knowing - and it's called the 'chromatic scale'.
