Should we learn one Major scales all positions and then minor related to it and pentatonic related to it ??Or do all major scales first ??What way to avoid confusion !!! -------------------- Article Writing

As long as you know where the root is, you can move these shapes around to apply them to all 12 keys. So if the root is an A in any of those shapes, then it is outlining an A major scale. To apply these scales to a chord sequence, you just need to figure out the key of the song and then you can use the major scale that fits that key. If there are multiple keys it gets a bit trickier, but for a song that has the chords G C D, which is in the key of G major, you could use the G major scale to solo over these chords when it's time to play a lead part.

So, play the five shapes in G major until you can do it at a decent tempo, with no starts and stops, from memory. Then, take it through another key such as A, D, C or E. Eventually you want to cover all 12 keys, but starting with one and really nailing it is a great place to begin.
