I started out playing a lot of theory/exercises including scales.
1. they were boring
2. it wasn't music
Then I began just learning lots of solos and licks. That's when things actually started to click and make sense. Plus, it sounded good and kept me motivated to continue playing, unlike scales which bored me to tears.
I'd say practice scales a little, but knowing music is superior to knowing lots of theory.
