    after i learn scales i don't see how to use it to write music.
    i have the whole major and minor scale in notes but also how do you put it down on the fretbaord.
    i mean like what is the pattern?
    i have read every lesson on the internet and they don't help me much.
    i guess i should find a teacher this summer.

    Well for writing music and scales and music theory you should definitely get a good teacher.

    But it gets pretty tricky trying to teach improvisation. Just something you gotta work on yourself I guess.

    A good example of how scales can be used in songs is Immagrant Song by Led Zepplin. Check it out.
