Very useful stuff Ivane!
Cool, I planed to learn the minor scale next, but it seems that I will learn the major scale at the same time. I was afraid that I will have to learn the modes at the same time, but learning just another five shapes just like in the pentatonics seems much easier:)
Great lesson Ivan and very informative!
Very useful lesson Ivan!
After learning the pentatonic I really needed some more theory like this to keep me motivated. Thanks Ivan!
Very useful lesson Ivan.
I'd better get learning this!!
This is the first method and it is recommended for fast learning. However if you want to become really flexible with your playing there is another lesson coming called "3 note per string method". It is not that difficult it has 7 patterns instead of 5 and it is very suitable for shredding and heavier types of music. If you want to be versatile player definitely recommend covering them both. Cheers
Very useful, Ivan
Thanks Ivan this is very usefull
I'm glad you found it useful man, cheers
Very well done Ivan !

Thx Ivan for this useful info.
Thanks a lot for the kind feedback. Cheers guys.
Excellent lesson Ivan. Well produced!
Very informative Ivan!
WONDERBRA Ivan! excellent series !!! Enjoy this fine presentation on how to develop mixing both major and minor patterns!
Hey GMC, welcome to new series of lessons called "Mastering Diatonic Pattern".
Diatonic Scales are very important step in learning to play gutiar and creating music in general. This pattern contains major scale and the modes, and it is most often in use in most music styles.
This series will contain 2 lessons, and in each lessson we will cover one method of learning the Diatonic Pattern over the whole guitar fretboard. Each method is position oriented, and in this lesson number 1 we are doing the CAGED method. If you already practiced boxes of the pentatonic scale it will be very easy for you to understand CAGED here as well. We are doing the same positions with only a couple of notes added. The next lesson in the series will cover 3 notes per string patterns. There are 7 of them, and they are equally important as CAGED patterns so stay tuned for that one as well.
The lesson is divided into 5 practice-along videos. You can practice along with me during the playback of the video. The metronome will click over the video at 60bpm, and we will change note durations to get faster. This kind of method has a bit faster tempo changes but it is good because we cover more rhythmic territory, which will later show in our playing as well. We will cover these note durations:
- quarter notes
- eight notes
- eight note triplets
- sixteen notes
- sixteen note triplets
Have fun with the lesson :)
