  • Hi GMC! How do you do! In other lessons we work with the pentatonic scale, arpeggios, etc. Today is the turn of the Major scale or Ionian mode.

    If you learn the major 7th arpeggio well, the work is simple. You have to add the major second, just fourth, major sixth and that’s all! Of course we can harmonize the note of the arpeggios with triads! And you have to do this work of all the neck.

    The major scale or Ionian mode is composing by 7 notes: The root, major second, major third, just fourth, just fifth, major sixth and major seventh.

    We study the different boxes of this scale. First start in the fifth string of the guitar in note C (C major chord), then in the sixth string in note C too, now in sixth string again but now the box is to the front, then in fourth string, and the last one in fifth string to the back (to the bass direction of the neck).

    In this lesson I harmonize any note of the arpeggio with triads. The idea is that you can play a melody harmonize at the same time but for this pay attention to this work.

    Now I recommend practicing any box and pay attention to any notes!

    You can practice in different keys too (as possible).

    I hope you like it!
