From 0 to 10 Scales in 10 Days (GUARANTEED!)

Want to start doing your first set of scales in just 10 days? Well, if you watch this video and perform the patterns as shown, you’ll be doing at least five scales in no time flat. After that, the remaining five will come along very quickly using the practice ideas outlined in the lesson...





This 10 day, "Zero to 10" scale workout will help you learn five scale patterns centered off of the inner four guitar strings as major shapes. After learning how to organize the starter patterns, you'll learn how to organize the "Relative Tonality" root notes for an additional five Minor scales!





The key to success with the 10 day timeline will all be based around starting from the perspective of isolating the scale tones from within the four inside guitar strings.

Doing the workout on just those four inside strings will help you progress through the more complex scale designs on the neck right away. Afterward, you'll be able to further increase your scale range out to the 1st and 6th strings along the way, (as you need those tones).

The best part about this lesson is that it’s going to be the last day that you say, “I can’t play any scales.” Because if you follow what I’m going to show you today, I guarantee that you’re going to be able to do at least five scales.





If you put the work in those five will lead you toward knowing how to apply them as ten scales in total - with five for major keys and five for minor keys.


If you dedicate the next ten days to doing this work, you will achieve the fingerboard knowledge on your neck for these scales. 


So, the main thing that’s different here (compared to how you may have tried to study scales in the past), will be in the approach that we’ll apply. 


It’s not going to be the standard text-book approach to learning scales. We’re going to approach this a little bit differently. So, grab your guitar and reach for a piece of fingerboard work-sheet paper.


The first pattern that we’re going to study will set the stage for how the remainder of the rest of our patterns will function along the span of the neck. 


Our work will only be focused on the inside four guitar strings, with our awareness focused on how the notes of the scale we study can operate onto the outer strings by way of simply learning only two notes located on either the 1st or on the 6th string. 



This works very effectively, because the names of the notes on those two outer strings are the same, making the naming of those notes very easy to understand. So, with all of this in mind, let’s get started with learning our first pattern. 



Example 1).
“D” Major 5th string and 2nd string roots played in the second position of the neck. 



The lower 6th and 1st string notes are available as notes of “G and A.”


Now that you have the basic idea for how this extended scale layout system works – what we’ll do next is study the remaining 4 patterns that you can use to learn the “Major” scale all over the guitar neck. 





At the end of the lesson, I’ll help you understand how to flip all of these patterns over to Minor shapes. But first - here’s a short promotional message about my “Handouts Collection” eBook offer…



I wanted to take a minute to let you know, that if you want to learn even more about scales and theory I have a great offer for you.

With any donation over $5, or any merchandise purchase from my Tee-Spring store, I’ll send you free copies of THREE of my most popular digital handouts.

One is called, “Harmonized Arpeggio Drills” (it’ll train you on developing your diatonic arpeggios).

Another one is my “Barre Chord” Handout which includes a page showing all the key signatures along with a chord progression that applies barre chords.

Plus, you’ll get my Notation Pack! It has 8 pages of important guitar worksheets for notating anything related to; music charts, guitar chord diagrams, and TAB.

As a BONUS, (from my "Over 40 and Still Can't Play a Scale" video), I'll also throw in a breakdown of all of the chords that are diatonic to the "F Major" scale.

As an EXTRA BONUS for my Phrygian Dominant video, I'll also throw in a breakdown featuring all of the chords that are diatonic to the Phrygian Dominant scale.

Just send me an email off of the contact page of to let me know about either your donation or your Merchandise purchase and I’ll email you those digital handouts within 24 hrs.   



Example 2).
“D” Major 5th string and 3rd string roots played in the fourth position of the neck. Here’s the full pattern…




The lower 6th and 1st string notes are available as notes of “A and B.” 




Example 3).
“D” Major 3rd string root played in the sixth and seventh positions of the neck. Here’s the full pattern…



The lower 6th and 1st string notes are available as notes of “B and C#.” 




Example 4).
“D” Major 4th string root played in the ninth position of the neck. Here’s the full pattern…




The lower 6th and 1st string notes are available as notes of “D and E.” 




Example 5).
“D” Major 4th string to 2nd string roots played in the ninth position of the neck. Here’s the full pattern…




The lower 6th and 1st string notes are available as notes of “E and F#.” 




Now, that we have five scale patterns for Major, the remaining five for Minor Keys will be very easy to develop. And, how this all works is it’s based upon the fact that minor keys are all the same scale shapes on the neck as Major keys. 


All you need to do is locate the 6th note (from the root of the Major key), and you’ve located your root for Minor. In the key that we just worked on of “D Major,” the 6th note is “B.” So, all we need to do is perform each Major scale we just learned from off of the note “B.” 



By focusing on the 6th note of the Major scale and using that 6th tone as our new root note, we instantly have 5 more Minor scales from the exact same patterns. Let me quickly demonstrate this using that first pattern that we worked on at the start of the lesson…





Example 6).
If we perform the initial "D Major" scale shape off of the note of “B” we automatically produce a scale that establishes Minor tonality.




All you have to do is follow through with those remaining four Major scale shapes and you’ll have all of the rest of the minor scale shapes everywhere across the fingerboard for a grand total of ten shapes (5 major and 5 minor). 


Practice each shape for approx. 10 min. per shape over a period of 10 days and you'll have them all down!
