Watch the E major in 2nds online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Guitar Lab: Chord Scales Vol. 1
The first interval that you'll learn to visualize on the fingerboard will be 2nds. 2nds are quite simply two adjacent notes out of the scale. They're named 2nds because they encompass two letter names of the musical alphabet. There are two types of 2nds that we'll be dealing with: major 2nds, which are two notes a whole step apart, and minor 2nds, which are two notes a half step apart. This lesson will teach you to visualize the E major scale in intervals of 2nds on the 4th and 3rd strings.
