Hey,

On guitar fundamentals I learned the open major scale A C D E G, then I go on the Tool box to practise my scale and remember some of them, and surprise those scales patterns have nothing to do with what we learned with Lisa in the fundamentals 2.

Is there a tutorial somewhere that explains where those scales are coming from ? I m so confused now with those patterns

Please help

The Scale Finder is more of a reference source. It will show you every possible scale pattern. But as a beginner guitarist you only need to know enough to play a few basic scales to start making music.
