This tutorial has a companion tutorial that deals with the minor scale.
It is possible to play the same note in more than one place on the guitar. As a result, guitarists must take the time to carefully map out all these possibilities. This is important because it can help us find the most efficient way to play any given series of notes. It is alos important because each pattern has it's own unique timbre (quality of sound). For example, playing a note on a lower string typically creates a bassier sound, while a note on a higer string has a more treble sound. Also, notes played on wound strings sound very different than notes played on unwound strings.
It is good to know these things and be able to effectively and competently deal with them.
There are three primary patterns. We will start with them. Then, we will move from pattern to pattern by gradually changing from one to the next, moving notes as necessary.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
