Learn To Play Major Scales Round The Cycle
This lesson carries on from the last major scale lesson which concentrated on teaching you seven major scale patterns in position. In this lesson, you will take these seven major scales play them, not only in one position, but also round the cycle of 4ths/5ths.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN THIS GUITAR LESSON
Assuming that you have already learned the seven guitar scales shown in the previous video (link above), Ged Brockie will discuss and demonstrate how to play these scale forms round the cycle of 4ths/5ths.
The reason for learning this is to break away from playing in one key and to not only visualise, but to hear the many different scales that are right under your fingertips at all times across the fretboard. If you have struggled with improvising, or you can’t seem to get your sight reading together, one probable cause is that you don’t know where the scales lie one to another across the board. Learning to play round the cycle breaks the habit of only practicing in one key.
MOVING FORWARD WITH YOUR MAJOR SCALES
As was mentioned in the previous major scale lesson, learning scales is to then enable you to play melodies all over the guitar neck as melodies are made up from scales and arpeggios. Make sure to view our other videos both pre-recorded and live that GMI Premium updates bring to help you get the most from your understanding and execution of scale form patterns.
