The Major Scale

Get full access

The Major Scale is the foundation for nearly all of what we know as Western Harmony. It's construction allows us to understand how nearly all rock music goes together, and our understanding of it's workings is an essential part of everyone's musical education. The construction of the major scale follows the same formula every time. Focusing on it's use in a rock guitar context, we are going to look at a few different ways to play this scale. We are than going to take each of these different approaches and play them in the styles of some rock guitarists that you already know. Our understanding of how to play this scale in these different ways sets a strong foundation for us to expand on this never ending concept. Make sure before practicing any of these examples that you refresh your knowledge of the notes on the guitar neck, as this is crucial to moving through this chapter effectively.
