guitar scales

We all have our own voice in music, and it’s in there waiting for you to crack it open. I don’t think the problem here would be the tone of the guitar based on what your saying. To reiterate I feel like I am not getting the most out of my abilities with my previous instructor. These instructors should have brought in songs sheets from popular guitar music.

My question is just looking at the pentatonic finger pattern is straight forward for the 6th string, but Im not understanding the 2nd pattern on the 5th string. The major scale is heavily used in a number of ways. Like I said structure before improvisation. Searching for understanding I found your site and looks simpler.

Example: A “D” chord can move up to fifth fret to create an “F” chord structure. just be yourself, and I promise the sounds made will feel like an extension of yourself describing all that you are. Keep the rule of relative major in mind and connect this scale with the other scales you’ve learned in different keys. When soloing is it ok to mix all the scale in solo??? could there a better explanation?

Learning to play the guitar has absolutely no bound.

Please show them this comment. Start by practicing the scale ascending and descending. Like knowing where the BC or EF half steps are on each string at each Fret. You can find backing tracks to play all of these scales over in our backing tracks section of the site. In the minor scale, we can find the relative major in the third note of the scale. I may sound corny, or sappy, but I mean every word of it. Old post, but does anyone have a link to the main article he references here? For months I’ve been utterly frustrated reading articles full of neck shapes and diagrams linking to each other but never explaining the fundamental basis of their relationships (a bit like getting windows 8 to work normally). It’s been a long 5 years.
If on the other hand the red dot was the 8th fret of the 6th string, then this note is a C and the scale would be the C minor pentatonic.

I play Rhtyum but have no idea how to play lead and dont know what scales are or how to play them .

This will help us lay better groundwork for the rest of this lesson. I know all the Major 2 Octave Scales up and down the fretboard. Or is there a scale consisting of A#, A, and G?

I want to get the most out of my ability and be melodic. If you do not enjoy like really enjoy playing that song you love then walk away and find something you love. For me, it’s figuring out where they all are so if your playing in a Major Key, you don’t “Accidentally” throw in a note which doesn’t fit.

I know I’m far from an expert player.. but I do hold my own when it comes to improve solos; I simply love to solo! Once you practice going all the way up and all the way down the ENTIRE pattern becomes muscle memory. For the D scale, you start on D, which is the 5th fret on the 5th string (which is the 2nd diagram). Remember this from the minor pentatonic scale section above? I think I’ve found what I’m looking for and here is the link: This is exactly what I want to be able to do. I can’t believe how confusing the diagrams are!! Horizontally, Vertically, or Diagonally. All this knowledge is great and I understand that eventually it’s all necessary, but I’m losing my way a bit and practicing is getting less constructive day by day and therefore more frustrating. Hope its ok to say very inspirational. GRRRRRRR color me frustrated with this site. I did that briefly with that instructor but no that long ( maybe two weeks).

Pro Tip: The guitar scales chart for the minor pentatonic scale is outlined below in two octaves like all of the ones above. I want to learn scales and positions and in my mind then I will be able to play leads to whatever chord progression a song may have. A lot of this material is more designed for a player who has put in a bit of practice and has some basic coordination at the instrument and wants to start looking more at solos and starting to improvise. I played in a garage band back in the 70′s and loved it and I was ( the lead guitar) player as I was the only guitar player. if you change the chords you are using that means you should change the scale too base on the chord? Thanks heaps for your input to the site. If you are reading from the minor scale example, it looks like this: Much like the major pentatonic scale, the sound of the minor pentatonic scale makes it appealing for many guitarists who want to write hard-hitting and straightforward guitar licks. I believe it is a good way to make your soloing sound musical in a short amount of time. I wouldn’t trade this skill, or education, for the world. I do have a few questions if you don’t mind answering. I have done this before and it don’t sound pretty :-). Jamplay has over 15 of these by different instructors but if your after a free option, I have read on forums that Justin Guitar has a good beginners course on his site, I haven’t had a good look at it but it sounds like the sort of thing that might be helpful. The Phrygian dominant which has a real flamenco sort of sound and is the fifth mode of the harmonic minor. The confusion is gone. It’s changed my life. Dude! Scales are what give us the ability to create chords. Make use of those open strings as well as your index and middle fingers.

Yes, it’s moved down the neck. This is probably what Draegor X posted…but his links are now dead, unfortunately.

Some likely candidates: Your may need to develop your timing. I often see people starting at lead and the’ve got it all together if they just add a bit more variety to the timing of the phrases (how long they hold notes, appropriate use of rests, …).

So in a sense, some would call me a “Professional”. – Should I play scales up and down the guitar fretboard by following the scale formula? Learn to play the A minor pentatonic scale. To learn to phrase with the notes of a scale takes a lot of time experimenting with the notes to come up with phrases that sound good to you. i only know the minor pentatonic scale and all of my solos only sound right on a blues or rock n roll chord progression. This website has opened my eyes, unlocked my ability and made me fall in love with the guitar again. I’m providing this to you for information. While the natural minor scale is most commonly used in rock and other popular styles to form solos over minor chord progressions, the Dorian mode is more commonly used to play over minor chords in jazz and fusion based styles.

I’ve seen a bit of confusion about these diagrams, so I might work on an additional article soon that goes through how to read them in more detail. I appreciate the diagrams. It’s not very well explained to complete beginners unfortunately.

I am both an affiliate of the course and a member there. Great site.

Try experimenting with it in different keys to get a feel for the sound of the scale and how it is different from the minor and major pentatonic scales. The second thing I would like to suggest is to also keep your old knowledge of playing single note chord tones and learn to integrate this and combine it with your newly learned scale knowledge. As you learn to play the scale and sequences of the scale, you should also start to slowly experiment with forming phrases and licks from the notes of the scale that you like the sound of. By starting with the pentatonic and blues scale, it is a lot harder for a phrase in your soloing not to sound good than it is with scales like the major scale. I’m not really too familiar with scales. I play a 12 String A/E Solo and sing, simply because I don’t have to worry about following someone else’s timing or making myself or someone else look bad.

And then the whole step, diminished and half diminished scales. but it might not be for a beginner landing here.

Trust me!

it will help me a lot sir if you explain or answer my questionS thank you so much sir Providing you are listening carefully to how this sounds while you are practicing, the sound of the scales will start to ingrain. I think I was just afraid…..it all seemed SO complicated, but you have explained it all brilliantly especially with the guitar tab kind of thing …….I’m going to love learning all this new stuff!! It is confusing as hell to have multiple red dots without understanding why. With the action just how I like it. For example, with the major scale if you were in the key of A major then the root of the A major scale would be A and the red dot on the major scale pattern would be an A. Practice the scales ascending and descending as well as the sequences of the scales I mentioned. Pro Tip: Begin this scale with your middle finger at any fret and us the fretboard chart in the section above to figure out what scale you are playing. Then move into experimenting with the scale over backing tracks. By organizing our twelve-note octave into smaller groups of notes, we are able to not only create amazing-sounding melodies, but corresponding chords as well. I don’t think that that this pattern based approach is very good, because it doesn’t actually help you to understand the sound of each scale. Anyway, my biggest obstacle to playing “Lead” is getting very nervous about making a mistake or just getting lost. You should put the ‘how to read necks’ section first, maybe as something expandable.
