Watch the Locrian Mode online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Stu Hamm U: Fretboard Fitness

The Locrian modes' fingering in this exercise marks a bit of a change. While keeping your left hand in the same position, the first note that you will play will be the F# with your first finger, and you will be playing it on the A string whereas all of our other scales in this section have started on the E string. With its flatted 2nd and flatted 5th, Locrian has its own vibe, but not quite as Middle Eastern as the Phrygian.
