Scale Studies

Learning the various scales involved in music is essential to become a better musician. In addition to improving your ability to play melodies and create fun solos, learning scales can help you learn where notes are on the fretboard – which can be a huge help for playing chords and other rhythmic styles too.

The below charts show the basic major scale in 2 octaves in both “open” and “closed” positions. In addition, I included notation for playing the scale “in thirds” both ascending and descending. Playing through these exercises daily can significantly increase your abilities in a short time!
