Visualizing Fretboard Scale 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. By doing this the result is that there are only 3 different shapes to learn. That is to say, every diatonic scale can be played by using combinations of only these three basic fingerings.
