Notice there are only have three basic diatonic variations:
Using these three possible configurations and the major scale interval formula we arrive at a series of patterns that cover an octave of the fretboard on two strings. On some positions we have the same set of intervals on both strings! This is very convenient. There is only one place in the entire scale pattern that throws this symmetry off; between the 4th and major 7th scale degrees. However, this one place has an effect on three positions.
Learning to get a handle on and maneuver around those little "bumps" in the road of scale pattern symmetry can be tricky. Take your time and practice it slowly.
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!
