GUITAR LESSONS FOR BEGINNERS: Playing C major scale on the guitar.

Hi my friends! Today I am going to show you two different ways you can play the “C major scale” on you guitar. Remember a major scale begins and ends with the same letter name.
Let us take a look at the C major scale.
C       D       E       F       G       A       B       C      -   (C MAJOR SCALE)
1        2        3      4        5        6       7        8

Now, you should notice that each letter of the scale is assigned a particular number. The numbers are there to tell you what degree of the scale is a particular note. Each degree of the scale will be illustrated in sequence showing you how to play the scale. The scale starts from the 1st note and ends on the 8th note.

The illustrations below show you two patterns as to how you should play the C major scale on the guitar. The first illustration shows how to play C major scale using the Lower strings with no open note while the second illustration shows how to play the C major scale using the higher strings which includes open notes.


I hope you enjoyed todays lesson. Remember to practice!
