In this topic we will learn how to extend a scale using its relative scale; in this particular case I will be starting with the A Natural Minor Scale and extending it using its relative Major Scale; C Major.

It is possible to vastly extend, for example, a Natural Minor Scale by using its Relative Major Scale as an extension. I feel that this is often over-looked by guitar teachers and is an excellent way of providing a system where students can start soloing quickly, without having to learn ALL the scales and modes first!
Try it for yourself: If you start with the A Natural Minor Scale at the 6th String/5th Fret, when you get to the 1st String/8th Fret just keep on going : 10th Fret, 12th Fret, 13th Fret, then once you have reached the 13th Fret, you can easily descend from the A Natural Minor Scale by using its Relative Major: C Major: which ends at the 6th String/8th Fret. (see attached TAB)


Try this method of extending scales with other scales that you know already; its also a great way to learn your relatives visually on the guitar fretboard.

Enjoy!

Tab is fairly unreadeble. I suggest you post it like this :


E||-------------------------|----------------------|----------------------|

G||-------------------------|----------------------|--4----5----7---------|
D||-------------------------|------------5----7----|----------------------|
A||--------------------5----|--7----8--------------|----------------------|
E||--5-------7----8---------|----------------------|----------------------|

------------5----7----|--8----10----12----13------|--12----10----------------| --6----8--------------|---------------------------|--------------13----12----| ----------------------|---------------------------|--------------------------| ----------------------|---------------------------|--------------------------| ----------------------|---------------------------|--------------------------| ----------------------|---------------------------|--------------------------| -------------------------|-------------------------|-------------------------| --10---------------------|-------------------------|-------------------------| --------12----10----9----|-------------------------|-------------------------| -------------------------|--12----10----9----------|-------------------------| -------------------------|-------------------12----|--10----8----------------| -------------------------|-------------------------|-------------12----10----| Am C ---------------------|--12----------------|---8----------------|| ---------------------|--10----------------|---8----------------|| ---------------------|---9----------------|---9----------------|| ---------------------|--10----------------|--10----------------|| ---------------------|---0----------------|--10----------------|| 8----7----5----------|--------------------|---8----------------||

Oh, I can see it now.
I was at school in the afternoon and could only open in another browser window and it was all chaos. Must be school computers.
Seems like a cool idea, kind of the same idea that Zsolts uses in his 'Modal Madness' only he plays through all of the modes immediately.
This will really be helpful for beginners!
