Watch the Minor Scale online guitar lesson by Trey Alexander from Rock Guitar For Beginners
This scale is a bit darker sounding and it seems that I always tend to like the minor sound better, but that may be my love for the blues and all things that tear out your heart, leaving your soul bleeding. You will hear guitarists such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Yngwie Malmsteen, Greg Howe, and Eric Johnson do wicked things with this scale. If you love crazy guitar solos there is a good chance you will find the minor scale plastered all through your favorite songs!
Let's learn the formula for a Diatonic Minor Scale and then begin to move it all over the fret board. I will provide you with chords for each of the scales so that you can hear the direct relationship with the notes of each scale.
