Watch the Both Hands: Major Scales online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Stu Hamm U: Tap Bass

We are going to use an A major scale for this exercise to show you that once you learn the correct fingering patterns you can play them in any key! The fingering for a C major scale will be the same as an A major scale, you just start at a different point on the finger board.

Notice the doubling of notes toward the end of this example and remember to practice it slowly so that you get a good tone.
