The Seven Positions of a Major Scale – First Position – Lesson 52

In this lesson we go over the first scale position of the Major scale – 3 notes per string.

Syn’s Tips

After you get this memorized, try applying all of the techniques you’ve learned thus far like string skipping, bending, groups of three and four, etc. Play to the backing tracks and metronome at a slow speed or “tempo”. When you can really nail this stuff, speed up the tempo in slow increments.

Ronit Ravi I'm confused whether to choose alternate picking or economy??? if i choose economy picking and practice it for couple of day then my alternate picking becomes a complete mess and vise versa. what should i do?? any suggestions or tip regarding that will be really helpful

Keenan Borgerson I learned how to do economy picking before I even learned scales so whenever I do these scales I end on an upstroke instead of a downstroke.😁😁

Avery Slayton I think a good point to make here is that these patterns are going to be repeated for every key and mode. Context is everything in this regard. For now just try to think of it as starting on the different notes of the G major scale or Ionian mode. As they talk about with the caged system, the patterns are finite. We recycle them for all of our keys.
