The 6-1 Major Scale-How To Practice It



From the Guitar Principles Course "The 6 Essenital Scales with Modes & Arpeggios"..............

There are six essential forms of the major scale. Once you know them, and the arpeggios derived
from them, you will have gone a long way to mastering the fingerboard harmonically. The problem
with learning these scales and arpeggios is that it is a lot of information to process! However, there
is a way of learning these scales and their arpeggios that is very systematic, and we are going to
follow that approach.


We are going to name these scales according to the finger that plays the root, and the string
number that the root is played on. The first one we will cover is called the 6-1 Major Scale, because
the 1st finger plays the root on the 6th strings.
