    just out of curiosity, if you play 3 notes on one string of the pattern, is it common to keep the “unused” fourth fretting finger up and not on the board (which you can see often in electric guitar playing) ?


  • tremoloheart · July 25, 2012 at 2:18 pm

    you forgot to mention that the pattern only works anywhere on the fretboard, as long as it’s on the bottom four strings (EADG strings). The pattern changes on the top two strings (B and E strings) because of how the B string is tuned differently than all the other strings.

    the twelfth fret of every sting when played is the same as that string open so the pattern would just start on the twelfth fret of the low E instead of open E . hope it helped :D


  • NukesForSamurai · July 25, 2012 at 5:25 pm

    I know that guitar, it’s pretty damn expensive, IDK why though, a bit overpriced in my opinion.

    yup, the eigth note is the same as the first note of the scale


  • nahiiiii · July 25, 2012 at 10:20 pm



  • 806brayden · July 25, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    So you play eight notes per scale which is an octave right???


  • WoXihuanCha · July 25, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    Learn your open chords first (Chords that involve your open strings, such as G)


  • darkpeach123 · July 25, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    Start with major. Then minor then dimished. Then go into all of the other chords like add9 and sus4 And ect. Then go into major scales then minor scales then dim scales. Then go to the modes. I am stuck on these myself but once your brain figures them out they are easy
