I'm this lesson I'm going to show you how to read scale diagrams. You'll find scale diagrams everywhere so learning how to read them is essential. You can view a guitar scale as sort of painter's colors pallet, were notes from the scale are ones you can use to compose licks/solos/riffs. These diagrams graphically show you which notes are found within a scale and are extremely helpful in visualizing scales and making learning them easier.
In the first video part of the lesson we'll take a look at a most basic form of a scale diagram and how it works. Video part 2 contains info and examples of other common scale diagram forms you might encounter.
I hope that you'll find this lesson useful, please contact me if you have any questions about anything guitar/music related - I'll be glad to help! You can contact me via private messages or send an email directly to: [email protected]
Looking forward to hearing from you! :)
