Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question…
Q: I started playing guitar earlier this year and still consider myself a beginner. I’ve studied several different chords and learned some parts of songs. But, I want to know where I should begin with learning some of the basics about scales. I tried “C Major” in open position, but I realize, there are neck patterns. Could you make a lesson on Scales for Beginners?
Jason – Silver City, New Mexico USA
A: Scales are one of those important guitar neck ideas that we all need to work on at some point. And, for beginners, scales will often come up when learning song parts that contain single-note melody lines. For beginners, scale ideas tend to get learned in small regional areas that are often tied to a song melody and not to any music theory idea. This can pose a problem for beginners since the patterns and shapes are not clear with respect to their tonality, (if they’re major or minor) and to how the scales can be applied in more than one musical situation. In this lesson we’ll work on getting more logic together with the scales. We’ll work on fret-board awareness with scale names and scale types, we’ll learn some simple major & minor shapes and we’ll put them into use around short melodies.
