  • Hey GMC'ers! I hope that you already checked my lesson on 8-finger aeolian scale, in which the basic idea of 3+3 scales is explained more thoroughly :)

    This time, you will learn how to use the same scale model to play the Ionian mode. Also, this position allows you to play some other scales as well. You can see the explanation to this in the spoken video.

    Again, you can see the great advantage of 8-finger tapping scales, there is a great number of scale combinations that you can apply them to. In this series, we are only doing the 3+3 model, but, there are a lot more position combinations that you can use for playing scales, since now instead of 4 fingers, you have 8, and that gives you a lot of new possibilities. Only, now is for you to explore them and use them according your already developed style.

    Tuning:
    * E - B - G - D - A - E
    (From thick to thin string)

    Key:

    Time Signature:

    Enjoy! Aleksander
