GUITAR THEORY: Effective Guitar Scales
Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question...
Q: Being able to play skillful melodic phrases on guitar is not going very well for me. I want to learn how to have the kind of flowing melody that I'll hear from my favorite players. I'm not having much success and I think it's the way I'm applying the scales. Is there a practice approach that would help me get better at having really effective use of the guitar scales?

A: This lesson explains various ways of working on geometrical scale patterns. Building the skill based upon a foundation of very well memorized shapes in order to be able to control how a melody will move. The examples will cover scale tones traveling in various ascending and a descending ways functioning across the neck both horizontally and vertically. In addition, this lesson places a focus on ways that scales can be studied to help them become more effective. In the long run this will help players improve their scale use and scale application.
