c major notes andguitar exercises


Take a look at the image to the left. You will notice seven sections. Each section includes the notes in the key of C Major. The first note of the C Major key is the C note. The second note is the D note, then the E note, F, G, A, B and C notes in that order. In the example to follow, we will use these notes of the C major scale.

 

The exercise below is played from C to C, in the key of C major, using 3 notes per string. Your lead guitar playing can gain lots of speed when you play this scale with 3 notes per string. You will want to incorporate some hammer ons and pull offs to increase speed and dexterity. Look at the illustration below and notice that in this position the major scale you can play 3 notes each string and start each note with just your 1 finger. Try out the example shown. It may take some time to get burning up the fret-board, but in time you will be. It's highly recommend that you practice all of the exercises and positions in each example.
