Gold Level Lesson

Playing major guitar scales in one position.

In the last lesson you were asked to construct four different major keys. The four keys you were asked to construct were in the keys of C major, G major, D major and A major. I mentioned that once you constructed these major keys, we would learn 4 fingering patterns to play each of these major guitar scales in one position. We will now call this position the II position. Before we play these major scales, we need to learn a little about the four different fingering patterns.

The patterns will be illustrated as Type 1, Type 2, Type 3 and Type 4. Each of these patterns will start on a different finger. But, each of these patterns will be played in this II position. Meaning, you will now play C, G, D and A major in one position, but use 4 different fingering patterns. The first position will be called the Type 1 position and will be explained below. (Gold Level Membership Lesson) Highly recommend
