In this section, we're going to look at playing the minor scale up the high E string. In this way of examining the scale, we can see the W-H-W-W-H-W-W pattern very clearly. We'll start on the 5th fret, and move up the scale in the key of A minor. The notes in A minor are: A-B-C-D-E-F-G-A

Let's take a look at a "real world" example of this scale concept in the neo-classical style using this A minor scale.
