Everybody's Basic Guitar Scales is a collection of the most frequently used scales for the contemporary guitarist. Major, minor, and pentatonic scales are presented in open position for the beginners, and the full range of the guitar for intermediate/advanced player. Each scale is written in standard music notation with tablature and is shown with a fingerboard diagram for ease of use. To improve note-reading skills, a one octave scale with letter names for each note is provided for every scale. The scale order (circle of fifths) and page layout are arranged to allow students fast, easy access to any desired scale. Includes sections such as Getting Started; About the Box Patterns; Scale Theory; Chromatic Scale; Advanced Scale Practice plus a glossary that addresses general music terms and symbols. Students of all levels will find new challenges on every page.
