Strings High E Through G

First let's break down the pattern on the top 3 strings. Let's start in the 3rd fret of the high E string with our ring finger, next we'll go 1st fret with our index finger, then we have the open E string.

The good news is that it's exactly the same frets on the B string. On the G string, we'll just go 2nd fret (with our middle finger) to the open G string.

Now we've played a full octave of the C major scale, but as you may or may not have noticed, we're not starting and ending on a C. In the previous tutorial we broke down the horizontal major scale and hopefully you remember that our C note is here in the 1st fret of the B string!

So in this pattern we're going from G to G, but still using all the notes of the C major scale: G A B C D E F G.

Now let's practice this pattern.
