You use the root notes to orient yourself, but there is no rule that says you have to play them in every box, or even that you EVER have to play them smile.gif As long as you know where they are , you know where you are within the scale when you move around, and you just play the notes you need to get the tune or effect that you want.

The key in sliding is that you position one of your fingers, any one, on the correct string and fret for the new box, and that you know the new box well enough to sort of switch in your mind to that box, knowing what part of the new box your finger is now in. From that point on you carry on playing in the new box.

I never really think about landing on the root notes, not when changing scale box atleast.

Hi to stratmans bro!

A root note is the first note in a scale, the note it is named for. So in a scale of C, the root note is C, in a scale of A minor, the root note is A - its as simple as that!

I'll be posting a lesson on this soon!

hi again biggrin.gif

so if there's 3 root notes in the same scale does it mean that they are all in the same key!
and there are just there for ascending + descending to a higher or lower key in that scale.
thx huh.gif

Well, pretty much a scale IS a key ... the rule is, if you are playing in a scale, any notes in that scale belong in the key. It doesn;t matter which box of that scale you are in, any of those notes would fit. So when moving between boxes you can jump from any note in the first box to any note in the second - you need to decide which notes to jump to based on how easy it is to make the switch, and where the riff you are playing is actually going - there's no point in jumping boxes just for the hell of it, you need to be friven by the riff.

Hope that helps!
