Since I mostly play m7 chords, I guess my "favorite" scales are Dorian and Mixolydian.

I also like harmonic and melodic minor, blues,.and Major.
Ehich I use depends on the song

I agree on the Chromatic.

But If I had to choose another...

Dorian, Phrygian, Major, Minor, Diminished. They're all fun.

I like to use mainly a mix of Minor, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Harmonic Minor, and a bit of Japanese, with a taste of chromatic.

I voted for pentatonic cause when i solo I mostly just use it, with some added major/minor scale notes

but I guess i mostly use major scale secretly entwined into my folk music finger picking

forgive me if this is a dumb question, but what's the use of the chromatic scale? since it contains all notes, isn't it something like plalying with no scale at all?

Not a dumb question at all. The Chromatic scale is more of a concept than an actual scale. Many guitarists struggle with this idea and haven't a clue how to actually apply the Chromatic scale.

So, in a sense, you are right; using the Chromatic scale is almost like not using a scale at all.

Rock on!

@gs124 I think the chromatic scale happens to be a legitamite scale
and not just a concept. Because It requires the the notes to follow
A complete pattern all Hs.

Its contains all the notes, but that doesnt change the fact that its still played in the specific formula. I.e A scale.
