  • In this lesson I will try to help you develop correct left hand technique using some basic scales to show you correct fingering.

    I have provided you tabs for all grooves and scales i've played, in same order they appear in video.

    Example 1:
    C major groove part 1:
    G|------------------------------12-10-9----|
    D|--------7---7-9-10-------9-10---------12-|
    A|---7-10---8--------10-12-----------------|
    E|-8---------------------------------------|

    C major groove part 2:
    G|----------10-------12--------10-9--------|
    D|-10----------7---7----9----9------12-9---|
    A|----7---7------8--------10---------------|
    E|------8----------------------------------|

    C major scale, forwards and backward (played slow):
    G|-----------------------------------------|
    D|-------------7-9-10--10-9-7--------------|
    A|------7-8-10----------------10-8-7-------|
    E|-8-10------------------------------10-8--|

    Pay attention to correct fingering, as shown in video.

    Example 2:
    Minor scales:

    C minor groove - part 1:
    G|-----------------7-8-10-8-7---------------|
    D|---------8----10------------10-8----------|
    A|---10-11---10--------------------11-10-8--|
    E|-8----------------------------------------|

    C minor groove - part 2:
    G|-------------------------------------------|
    D|---10-8----8-------------------------8-10--|
    A|--------10---10-8------------8-10-11-------|
    E|-8----------------11-8-10-11---------------|

    C minor scale, forwards and backwards
    G|---------------------------------------------|
    D|-----------------8-10--10-8------------------|
    A|---------8-10-11------------11-10-8----------|
    E|-8-10-11----------------------------11-10-8--|
