Watch the Scales 10ths & 3rds online guitar lesson by Denny Sarokin from Songwriter's Guide to Great Guitar

Scales in 10ths can give you a short cut to playing, “Blackbird”.


Add a little tremolo (continuous, fast up and down picking) to 3rds on the treble strings for a mandolin or mariachi effect.


Mix and match 3rds in G and you’ve got the lick for “Brown Eyed Girl”.
