The discussion about scales is about playing notes to me. It isn't a discussion about playing music. Scales get you in the ball park. What happens in the ball park is up to you. That's when knowledge, experience and taste come together. As far as scales I come from the background of minor pentatonic, major pentatonic, chromatic and modes. Knowing the basic chords in all positions is necessary also. Your personal secret sauce is what makes the difference though. If you play with your ears you can forget the majority of notes. But then most people don't listen.
