Hi Cool Girl, You ask a very good question. My best advice is to learn the maj7 scales and the min7 scales. They might even want to see you play maj7 and min7 pentatonic scales. Charts for each are readily available by internet search. Remember, the scale patterns are the same regardless of the key. Find your scale root and that's where the pattern begins. For example: Cmaj7 scale starts on the 5th string, 3rd fret, but if you wanted to play the same scale in D, you would simply start your scale pattern 2 frets up. Knowing all the notes on the guitar neck is certainly a leg up. The key to learning these scales is committing them to muscle memory through practice so you can rip through them without having to think about it. Start slow at a constant meter and work up to fast. It takes time, at least it took me time. Lastly, I'd like to say that auditions can be tough and they shouldn't be the yardstick by which you measure your skills. For instance, I made good money as a gigging guitarist for years, but I can't play two guitars at once like that young man on youtube. So I encourage you to find joy in the journey and enjoy and develop the talent that you've been given. Best to you in your endeavors. Clark

If you are a beginner, the ones who are auditioning you will see that even though it says you need to play 2 scales they probably aren't just going to have you play the scale back and forth they will probably see if you can apply those scales and besides you will still need an audition piece most likely
