Visualizing Fretboard Patterns Series 1

Lesson Info

In this tutorial we will look at a way of visualizing the guitar fretboard. First we will look at playing diatonic scales (major, minor and the various diatonic modes) in patterns that result in 3 notes per string. Because there are only 3 different shapes to learn, the result is that every natural diatonic scale can be played by using combinations of only these three basic fingerings. This is also a good way to get used to the musical alphabet. There will be a lot of backing track play along exercises to practice the ideas.
