Topic: Any good ideas to learn the scales?

Are there any shapes that are good to play when improvising? I'm looking at mostly rock and blues.

Thanks,

You might want to give a little study into the Circle of Fifths and how it relates to key signatures, chord progressions and the Relative Minors of those chords.  Those chord shapes contain and identify the colors (notes),  you have in your "palette"  at your disposal to paint your improvisation with..... the rest is practice, and learning how to transition between them.  smile
