Nah, I was just pushing back against someone else's argumentative aggressiveness which was addressed at a different commenter.
That is not true. I am happy that you now seem to have changed your mind on the matter, but your first contribution to the thread was this:

Finally, ditch the Segovia scales. They're needlessly complicated, illogically compiled, and about the least useful scales I've ever seen.

To return to the first post question:

Moving into cg, I am slowly learning them...noticed cg is not vamps or pentatonic boxes or Travis picking or....🙂

I am finding Sean Thrower, The Segovia Scales Illustrated, 2017 helpful. His breakdown of the 8 patterns combined with the fretboard diagrams to visually augment the notation is for me helpful. Sometimes I sing the notes, too. I go slowly to get things right and I enjoy the beautiful sound of each note played correctly.
