Practicing scales should be as interesting and diverse as writing music in my opinion so why not make it like that? biggrin.gif

How many ways can you think about going through a scale when practicing it? We shall develop this subject tonight at the v-chat, but in the mean time, you can think about it and write your thoughts on it right here in this thread!

By Interval

ie 1234,2345,3456,4567,5123 or 12345,23456,34567,45671

Using notes on open strings whenever you can (used in country music quite a lot)


Using octave jumps

1234, 1234 (up an octave), 5671, 5671 (up an octave) etc

Different Rhythmic patterns

Interval sequences are always great. I like playing scales in 3rd and 5ths the most. 6ths are hard but sound great too.

Too many combinations, all about math and note ranges biggrin.gif

Interval sequences are cool indeed, lots of fun with them smile.gif

The thing I liked to do with pentatonic scale is play every combination of notes on two adjacent strings, and form a pattern that can go up and down. It helped a lot.

One way you can go through a scale is by using what is known as 'Neighboring notes". In order to do this you need to know what your main notes are. For example if we want t use an E minor pentatonic our main notes are going to be , EGBABDE. Starting from the first note (E) we can begin applying this Neighboring note concept. In this case we are going to use the lower Neighbor To (E) which is (D). This is how it's going to work: you start with the main note, then go to the note below it, then return to that same note, Ex . (E D E) (G E G) etc.. I have provided some examples in guitar pro format for you to look at, hope you enjoy, rock on.

A small mistake on my part biggrin.gif , the E minor pentatonic scale is EGABD

Awesome Amir! I shall take a look at the file as soon as I get back home and try to develop some ideas from it, post them in this thread and see where we can take it biggrin.gif

How about you guys? Let's all try some different approaches to Amir's idea wink.gif I'm sure the results could be interesting! Write your own ideas in a GP file and let's post them here!

I think scales are SO important! at first they might seem boring, but when you learn solos you realize that scales are all you need!
