There is no better place to start learning about scales and modes than the Major Scale - so let's get started.
In this exercise, I will show you a shape for a Major Scale in one octave that we will use throughout the fretboard to help you see scales everywhere!
In this exercise, you will continue visualizing and practicing a Major Scale in several positions on the fretboard, to help you further make linkages between scales and the fretboard.
In this exercise, you will see one way to play a Major Scale across 6 strings, which will be the basis for a lot of future scale exercises that you will see on this site.
Useful shape for a Major Scale plus fast position shifting technique!
