Another common technique for applying the major scale across all 6 strings is by beginning on the A string. While similar to our previous patterns, notice the slight variations in the order of notes and fingering positions. Again, we will start from the same place We are going to explore an example of this pattern in the key of D major.

The notes in the key of D are:
D-E-F#-G-A-B-C#-D

Let's explore this idea by playing a lead example in the style of Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins, Zwan) in the key of D.
