Writte the chord progression that you are using for the song, and we`ll tell you what scale is compatible.
And we can take it from there.

And, it dosn`t matter the type of guitar you are using.
Someday I`ll play like in my dreams.

Do u know how chords are constructed? if so u will know that a major chord is made of the 1st 3rd and 5th so in Cmaj the notes are C,E,G and the Cmajor scale is C,D,E,F,G,A,B,(C octave) so all u have to do is learn the major scale first.. the Cmajor scale is easiest cause it has no sharps (#) or flats(b) so get that down..then start learning minor scales and so on.. then its just a question of learning how to improvise and come up with solos for your songs and listen to other artists and see how they construct their solos..

"i was expecting some 3476 string string skipping with some 23489172343 octave sweeps and some alt picking runs at 345734237623572bpm in 234872364781246164516th notes across your 2384723648724627348623478264 fret guitar"
