  • Learn the Major Scale, $.99

    I bought this packet (I think it's 11 pages) yesterday on a whim. I'm pretty fluent on the major scale 3 notes per string, but if I don't specifically practice it for a few weeks, I sorta need a chart to remember some of the patterns (getting old!). Yes, I know the notes, yes I know the patterns... but it's just not sunk in completely in all 7 positions for some reason.



    Anyway, I had different names for what the author of this packet uses. I really like how he breaks things down simply, and spells out the patterns and rules. It's very simple and it works. Using this method you can play the major scale, 3nps from any position. It's easy to remember and makes sense - and I haven't seen this exact method anywhere else.



    It's only a buck, and it's worth it. After spending an hour on it I don't think I'll ever need a chart again - I got it!

      Let me know what you think.



      I think it's worth a buck.



      And after reading it, I was like "huh, I wish I had thought of it that way before!".

                  The major scale has to be second nature. After 40+ years I still find patterns and use it daily. It should be the basis for everything you learn about music in general and the guitar in particular. It should drive your understanding of melody.

                      It's a neat little tutorial. Thanks for posting it. I wish it addressed root notes, but the patterns are nifty.



                      Edit: Not that hard to puzzle out.



                      root notes:

                      X2, note 1

                      Y1, note 2

                      Z1, note 3

                          Nope. They have a "kindle" (i.e. a software reader) for most every platform, pc/mac/android/ios, etc...

                            So, question...



                            In the starting out section the author refers to a right hand pattern of i-m-i, m-i-m. What does this mean?
