Learn The Major Scale On Guitar – Lead Guitar Lesson #3

October 10, 2019


Welcome to lesson #3 of the Lead Guitar Quick-Start
Series. On this lesson we’re going to go over your first scale, the major scale, and
this one is really important because the major scale is pretty much the foundation of all
the other scales and chords that you’re going to learn as a guitarist. What we’re
going to do is work on just the basic mechanics and the memorization of the scale shape, but
before we actually jump into learning the shape, you need to learn how to read a scale
diagram. If you’ve learned how to read chord diagrams, it’s not a whole lot different.
On a scale diagram you’re going to see 6 vertical lines that represent the strings
of the guitar. The one to the far left represents the low E strings, the one to the far right
represents the high E strings and the horizontal lines on the scale diagram are going to represent
the frets of the guitar. When you look at a scale diagram, you’re going to see a lot
of dots on it. Those dots are either going to be filled in or not filled in. The filled
in dots represent the root notes of that particular scale that you’re looking at. So for example
we’re going to be learning a G major scale here. The filled in or black dots that you’re
going to see are the root notes of that G major scale, which means those are going to
be all G notes. The rest of the circles, the non filled in notes, are just the rest of
the notes in that scale. Now in those circles you’re going to see numbers, either 1, 2,
3 or 4. Those numbers just represent which fingers you should be playing those particular
notes with. For all the scales that we’re going to be learning in the Lead Guitar Quick-Start
Series, we’re going to be using the designated finger concept. I mentioned that in the first
lesson, and that just says that you’re going to have one finger that’s designated for
each fret in that particular scale. For this G major scale, if there are any notes that
occur on the second fret, you’re going to play those notes with your first hand; any
notes that occur on the third fret you’re going to play with your second finger. Any
notes that occur on any of the strings on the fourth fret you’re going to play with
your third finger and your pinky is going to cover any notes that happen on the fifth
fret. That’s going to become a lot clearer to you once we start learning the scale shape.
The major scale is a 7-note scale and if you look at the scale diagram for this shape we’re
going to be learning, you’re going to say “Nate, there are a lot more than 7 notes
on there” and you’re right. The thing is once you play the first 7 notes of that
scale; you’re just going to repeat those notes again one octave higher. So let’s
just into the scale, remember all the tips I’ve given you about small efficient motions
with your picking, staying relaxed, finger placement right behind the frets, coming right
down on the tips of your fingers, all of those things. So let’s get into the scale shape.
Our first note is going to be the lowest note of the scale and that’s going to be the
G root note right here on the third fret of the low E string. You’re going to play that
with your middle finger, your second finger. Second note on the scale you’re going to
get with your pinky on the fifth fret. Now I’m going to be using all downstrokes just to
keep things simple right now. So those are the first 2 notes of your scale. Now go over
to the next string and your first finger is going to come back to the second fret. Second
finger third fret. Pinky finger fourth finger on the fifth fret. So those are the three notes
on that string. So do you see how the designated finger concept
is kind of kicking in? The notes that occurred on both strings, both the low E and the A
strings on the third fret I was getting with my middle finger. The note that occurred on
the second fret I was getting with my index finger there. Third finger was getting the
note on the fourth fret. My pinky was getting both notes on the low E and the A for the
fifth fret, so both of those strings together, just take it a little bit at a time. Work
on just those two strings. And like I did just there, make sure to go up and come back down too. Let’s add in the notes on the next string on the D string. Those notes are going to
be first finger second fret, fourth fret with your third finger and your pinky is going
to grab the fifth fret. And that brings us up to an octave G note. So we’ve played 7 notes and then back up to another G. So work on just those notes. Get them under your fingers,
then add them in to the rest of the scale. That’s our first octave of that scale, 7
notes, right? And then to the octave, another G note right there. We’re just going to
repeat that major scale and to do that we need to learn the notes on the G string, which
is something really cool right here. It’s the same exact pattern that you had on the
last string, you’re going to have your first finger second fret, third finger fourth fret,
pinky finger fifth fret and those are the notes on that string.
Looking for repeating patterns like this is a trick to memorizing scale shapes faster.
If I know that my D string and my G string have the exact same patterns on them, that
can make memorizing this G major scale a little bit easier. Incorporate that with the rest
of the scale and just work on that one chunk Once you have that down, you can add
the notes on the B string. And on the B string there are only two notes for the scale shape.
Middle finger is going to grab the third fret, pinky is going to grab the fifth fret. Those
are the only two notes under that string, so get those under your finger. Once you get
those memorized and down, just add it in to the rest of the scale So you’re almost there. You don’t have to learn this all in the course of this video.
It takes some time, a couple of days, week, month, whatever to get this scale shape down.
The notes on the last string, the high E string are the second fret with your first finger,
third fret your second finger, and your fourth finger is going to grab the fifth fret. You
got 3 notes on this string. Once you get it memorized, just work on going up and down the scale, making sure that you have it memorized and it’s under your fingers really well. So right now just focus on memorizing this scale
shape and getting it down. Another thing that I want you to realize is this scale shape
is movable too. If I had this G major scale that we just played and I move it to where
the root notes were on a different note, so if I moved my starting point up two frets to
an A note, now I’d be playing an A major scale using the exact same shape and now the
name of the scale changes to an A major scale. It’s also important to start memorizing
where the root notes of the scale shape are, so we know our lowest root note is here with
our middle finger, right? If we look at the scale diagram, we’re going to see another
root note here on the fifth fret of the D string and another root note here on the third
fret of the high E string. I’ve made a jam track for you to help you work on this major scale, and like I said earlier, it’s really important that you apply everything that you’re
going to be working on here to some real music So pull up that major scale jam track and what you want to do is just start off by getting the scale shape down, kind of using
it as a metronome. After you do that, you’re going to kind of want to emphasize the root
notes of the scale, and by emphasize the root notes all I mean is start and end or maybe
even pause on the root notes. After that, once you have the scale shape down and you
know where the root notes are, just try making up your own, like start to improvise and just
mix up out of thin air with this scale shape. Here’s a basic example of how you can start
to develop this scale with this jam track. So go as crazy as you want to with that. Memorize
the scale shape, memorize where the root notes are and then just start making stuff up on
your own. Thanks for going through this lesson with me. Don’t forget to apply everything
you’ve learned to real music, in this case the jam track I’ve supplied for you. You
may feel silly at first, you’re like you’re not very good, but that’s okay. The important
part is that you start to apply like I said everything you learn to real music and you
enjoy the process of making up patterns and learning this new scale shape.
In the next lesson, we’re going to learn a new scale that you can use over the same jam track that you used in this lesson. It’s going to be the major pentatonic scale, so
get ready for that. If you have any questions about the major scale or this shape, you can
leave them here on the comments and I’ll answer you there or you can just email me [email protected] See you in the next lesson.

    hey man. great lesson. i subscribed.

    i happen to have an image of 5 shapes of the Gmaj scale, my first shape is very similar to the diagram you have here of the 1st shape. the difference between the image i have and the image you show here in your video is that you suggest which fingers to use for which notes. Do you happen to have a downloadable file with the shape(s) you've put in your video ? It would be an amazing help.

    I would fill in the fingering myself, but instead of the root notes being coloured in on my diagram, the root notes are the white dots. lol

    My comment on Connecting the Chords by Scales:
    Hi Sean Daniel, I know my problem when connecting the chords with the scales,
    my chord progression was written in piano notes sequence instead of the
    guitar sequence (on fretboard). I changed my printout and changed all
    the chords to fretboard notes layout.
    For example: A= EAC# (guitar notes layout on the fretboard) instead
    AC#E (piano notes layout). Now, when I return to practice my guitar, I
    do not have to reconfigure my piano notes to guitar. Its guitar to
    guitar. What a big difference? Hope this helped.

    What is the use of these scales please explain it in detail with a video.

  • Reply Shane Clee November 7, 2017 at 12:48 pm

    Ok, lets go back to something even more basic……
    The actual mechanics of how the fingers move, as you go higher I can see that as each finger is laid on the string, it is left there, looking like a spider walk as they say.
    What about going back down?
    I get that you start off with 2,3 or 4 fingers on the string to begin with, and then remove them one by one, what happens when you move to the next string?
    What moves where when?
    Another thing I've noticed is that my little (4) finger seems to pop off the string like a tendon is stuck and then releases and it moves a fair way off and I can't seem to keep it a small movement, as I lift off 3, 4 gets higher, I lift off 2, 3 and 4 get higher still, like a rolling of may hand away from the fretboard but my wrist doesn't move, therefore when it's time to put 4 back down again, it's about a half to 3/4 inch away which really takes a lot of time when I try to play quicker and just can't speed up or reduce the lift of my fingers as I play each note down the neck.
    What the hell is going on? My fingers seem retarded and I can't control them. Lol. 🙂
    What's exactly is the hand position and technique? I'm lost.
    Been happening so long I was thinking I should now learn to play left handed and start all over again.

I'm quite humbled by your vids. I'm gonna practice the hell out of this scale, although I really want to jump to the pentatonic lol. If you were to read this and give advice though, do you think I should practice this scale until I am flying through it, or just competent and then move one and come back? Thanks again.

  • Reply joe doe February 11, 2019 at 6:20 pm

    It looks like all fingers to be used on a given string are being held down until all notes on that string have been played(?). Is that done for efficiency? I don't think many guitar players do that. I've seen them lift each finger back up as soon as each note ends. It would have been good to point that out.
    I had to google 'Nighthawk Anniversary guitar' to find out it's a Gibson(?) Can't see or read the top of the head to confirm. Youtube should pass a law that all guitar videos must list make/model in the notes at the top to save people from always having to ask in the comments. I could never buy so many guitars without being a rock star first. I wonder how Nighthawk compares with something like a Les Paul. Gibsons are known for being pricey, but I like the smaller body size. I wish you'd teach without the distorted sound. You never play the highest note in the chord diagram, which is the 9th.

    picked up some awesome information here thanks a lot! maybe i missed it during the explanation because i was trying alonfgside but could have been cool to mention the fact that when you are playing from lower to upper (or vice versa) notes on the same string, you (maybe?) don't need to move the finger that is closer to the left ( i mean to let the string go) . just figured it out by watching the way you handle it, it makes the handling so much easier. but damn my arm still hurts even trying to be decontracted, first day is hella hard tho lol

    Hey there still struggling a little bit with my improvisation like I memorized the whole scale but when I try to improvise to a backing track I don't feel like I like the Melody that's coming out and I can't do the melodies that i want like I play the note randomly
