Topic: The Major Scales Everyone Should Know (Part 2)

 

You can watch the lesson here... HERE.


There are a few patterns on guitar that are foundational - the most important is the major scale.

 

I'll be showing you what a major scale is, why it's important, and how to play the major scales that every guitarist should know.
 

We will learn the 5 most important open scale forms and 2 moveable forms which will allow you to play these important scales in any key anywhere on the neck.

 

Giveaways and more! Make plans to join your guitar family on August 9th at 7pm (central). Bring your questions and I'll see you there!

 

Our Ustream channel is here... HERE.

My Tuesday Night Live Lessons attendance is in conflict with a group ride for the remainder of the summer.  Looking forward to watching the recording of the show.   Thanks Steve and all the people with such great posts.  I'm learning a lot from the lessons and this forum.

 

I'm Thankful to all of you.

Hi Steve:

John Y from Louisville.  As far as playing major scales is concerned, I have learned both 3 notes per string & CAGED forms.  I struggle to decide which system to focus most on.  It seems that most books and other guitarists online(e.g. Desi Serna) center their teachings on the CAGED system.  Just wondering if you can tell me that when playing a major scale as in a solo or in improvisation, which is the best fingering patterns to play these scales with.  Is it 3NPS, CAGED, or some other form?  One nice thing about the CAGED system is that it fits in well with the pentatonic scales. I really want to focus on one form as much as possible not only to play the major scale but also to memorize the arpeggio and pentatonic forms all within that one system.  Any advice?

Steve,

 

That was a beautiful version of In the Garden.  

It is a favorite of one of my older church members.

Hope you post the tab someday.

 

 

Thanks for all you do.

 

Jeff

Hi Steve

 

I really loved your version of "Girl from Ipanema" there!!  You know, when I started to learn the guitar some 16 years ago, the aim was to create a programm with Bossanova classics, singing and accompanying myself, which in fact I did and Garota de Ipamema was one of the very first songs I learned. But I never reached the level to play a chord melody version.

 

So my question: do you have ressources for that? Or did you just make that up from the Real Book  like you showed us in July?

 

Thank you very much for all you do and welcome in the club of fifties :biggrin:

 

Kind regards

 

Bernhard

I just watched this recorded lesson. It might be the best one yet. I'm looking forward to the major scale practice that Steve is cooking up for us. Can't wait.
