blocks of any song. The chords are the combinations of notes played
in songs. Scales are mostly a practice routine, but you can build

you where to put your hand on the guitar. For example
though the notes are progressing to diffent frets you would keep
your hand on the G chord.
Scales can also be used to help write a guitar solo

to those chords) to form nice melodic parts.
