C Major Scale.
Quadruplets and major scale fingering exercises
Once you learn to play each of the C major scale exercises illustrated below, you can easily move these patterns ether up or down the fret-board to change the key. For example, you can move this entire fingering pattern down 3 frets and start on the 5th fret and play in the key of A major. If you started this pattern on the 3rd fret, you could play in the key of G major. Moving to the 12th fret, you would be in E major and so on. This is a must learn guitar exercise. You will be playing quadruplets, or 4 notes per beat.
The numbers in the image below represents each finger to use. Notice how you can play 3 notes per string and really burn up the fret-board. This exercise will really get your fingers in shape. It is highly recommended that you use the suggested fingering pattern that is illustrated.
The tablature has also been included.
You will find all of the major scales, with tablature and guitar audio in the Gold Level Members Section.
