To someone like me who's never delved into scales, it actually is a bit intimidating. But it doesn't look as complicated as I imagined it would be. A bit like barre chords. When I discovered the finger structure and then realized how easy it was to transfer that structure to any place on the fretboard... and then realized everything was all lined up in neat little rows, it was like a giant floodlight being turned on. It opened up a whole new world of playing for me. I'm guessing it will be the same for scales.

Thank you for taking the time to put this together and share it with those of us that are a little less informed. smile



Yeah, Yeah I know. A newbie breaking out the ancient threads. roll smile

lm not getting or seeing any of this

Re: Scales - A Primer

Jerome, I just tought I'd take a look at this thread. I'm so disappointed,  nothing will download. All the work you must have put into this thread and I can't see any of it. It must also be pretty frustrating for your good self.
I hope the problem is sorted soon.

I'm taking a look at the scale images now.   Combination of the image hosting site being radically changed when they switched to a "premium" model, and possibly a switch in the Chordie layout.

I'll either find them, or generate new ones.

Thanks all for the heads up.

Someday we'll win this thing...

Re: Scales - A Primer

Well, Jerome, I started a long journey today by setting down a practice schedule for playing guitar. I've now got a 6-string acoustic/electric, a 12-string acoustic/electric, and a 6-string electric. I'll be dedicating time to each of the guitatrs and divide the sessions into areas of practice. Those areas are scales, chords, arpeggios, songs, theory, & equipment. I'll be trying to cover all the  bases for each of the instruments. Chords is number one on he last. Wish me luck!
