1 - Whole step - whole step
2 - Half step - whole step
3 - Whole step - half step
Next, we look for places to play each pattern on 2 adjacent strings. This makes it easier to play any given pattern. Then, we play each 3 notes per string times 2 adjacent strings as a group of 6 notes. Next, we play each group of 6 notes in three different octaves across the fretboard.
This is a very important way of "opening up the fretboard". Using this idea is how many guitarists are first exposed to the idea of "how to use all the strings" or "more of the neck". It's crucial to see that essentially the guitar, and all music, is patterns that get repeated over and again in different octaves, higher and lower.
In this lesson I use the first pattern as an example: Whole step - Whole step.
Here are more tutorials covering different aspects of visualizing, playing and using fretboard scale patterns.
This is a great tool for use in any genre of music.
Once you have a grasp on all these patterns, then you are ready to learn how to use them to play fast licks, or show to shred! These tutorials are a series on building and using speed (very fast playing).
I hope you have fun with all of it!
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
