Umm....All? I don't know anything about scales beyond the first position of the Major and Minor scales.

I only know Major and Pentatonic and some different kinds of minor.
And I think one or two blues scales, maybe?

Minor, Major, Dorian, Mixolydian, Phrygian, Pentatonic, Blues, Mixo-Blues, Whole Tone.

Mostly I use the Minor, Mixolydian, Blues, and Whole-Tone when I improvise.

I know the patterns for Pentatonic Major, Minor and Blues scales. I'm working on learning the patterns for Major and Natural Minor scales as well.

I've memorized C Major, G Major, E minor and A minor though.

If you know the all the modes to a scale you should know that scale in any key. All you have to do is move the patterns.

I have completely memorized the phrygian dominant, mohamedan, aoelian, locrian, ionian, dorian, phrygian, lydyian, mixolydian, pentatonic minor, pentatonic major, blues major, blues minor, melodic minor, harmonic minor, hungarian minor, locrian 6, gypsy minor, super-locrian, diminished (whole/half) and diminished (half/whole) scales/modes.

And not in the 'box' position. When I try to learn a new scale I make a point of learning it all over the fret board rather than in a little square.

Also, I should mention that I learned all of these scales, and the chords contained within them, from this site and it's tools. Before I found this site I knew no scales except the box position of the natural (pure) minor scale.

Not trying to sound dumb or anything but what do you mean all over the fret board? For example if you play all of the modes of the Major scale in order that would be playing it all over the fret board. If you have a different way to look at it or if I am wrong please point it out to me. I want to know anything that would broaden my understanding of scale usage.

It's not too hard to understand, all over the fret board means not the box position, not one little chunk in one area. From open to the 24th fret on every string, memorizing the pattern. You're right about the modes of the major scale though. If you know them, and how they connect to eachother, you know them up and down the neck.

Well i may be wrong here, so someone may confirm this, but i have been doing a bit of music theory recently in my spare time and the reason they are the same may be because A is the relative minor to C and therefore contain the same notes.

Wow Matt's an animal!!!

It is important to break out of the box other wise you'll be soloing in little boxs and that sounds bad.

I think starting with the baiscs it best way to learn them, Major! you should concentrate on learning the notes of the scale and not the patterns. You'll see there is a repititon of patters which is applied in modes that will help you later on.
