In this lesson we are looking at an A major scale with the root note A in the lowest position. This means that the note A will be played by the index finger and the other notes will be played on higher fretboard positions. We'll continue the pattern to the next octave. This requires a position shift sliding the index finger up from the 7th degree to the root. We have to be careful of the G to B string tuning! Notice that when we move to higher octaves, we will simply repeat the pattern in the next octave. I call this patterns of repeating octaves. We'll also continue up to the next octave with a position shift. This gets us all the way up to the highest register of the guitar.
