hey everybody, i've been an acoustic player for a couple years now, and never really played electric. my younger brother is the opposite, but doesn't really want to play anymore, so he's giving the electric to me. i can play eyes of the world on it alright, but thats pretty much it. i was hoping to use the electric to start practicing scales and maybe learn to jam along with the dead. my question is, are there any scale books out there you would recommend? i'm looking for something thats informative and easy to understand. thanks a bunch

get "The Guitar Grimoire"-Scales and Modes, that'll be the only one you need
