Watch the Horizontal Major Scales online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from Modern Method for Guitar
In this play-along we will apply what we learned in Segment 11, Horizontal C Major Scale.
1. Play the horizontal major scales as demonstrated in the play-along video segment and written in the notation that follows. Note that in the video I play all 12 keys on the high E string. Another approach is to play in each key on all 6 strings before moving to the next key as written in the notation that follows.
2. When you get to the root of the scale, play the chord in place of the note to hear the tonal center of the scale.
3. Test yourself by thinking about what interval you are starting on in each key.
4. Also, try playing the root chord before you start the scale on each string to get the tonal center in your ear.
