  1. Hi, how you doing? Justin here again.
  2. In this lesson we are going to be talking
  3. about the 5 positions of the major scale.
  4. I'm going to take you through each
    position
  5. the way that I play it.
  6. Different guitar teachers and different
    guitar
  7. players have different opinions about what
    the correct
  8. fingering is for the five positions.
  9. Some guitar players use another system
    called 3
  10. notes per string in which there are 7
    positions.
  11. However, most guitar players I know seem
    to agree
  12. that the 5 positions system is the best
    one.
  13. There is no right or wrong with the
    fingering,
  14. the fingering I'm going to show you is the
  15. fingering that I've worked out that I
    think is logical,
  16. that suits me, just if your guitar teacher
    or
  17. someone you know plays it a different way,
    that's
  18. totally cool, I'm not trying to say that
    you should
  19. do it this way, but if you don't have an
    opinion,
  20. this might be a good one to start off with
  21. You'd probably only change it if you could
    come up
  22. with a logical reason why you should
    change it.
  23. So we are just gonna go for a close-up now
    on the
  24. left hand and just do each different scale
    position
  25. starting with position one.
  26. All of these scale shapes are on my
    website
  27. which is www.justinguitar.com so you might
    want
  28. to go and check that out, either download
    the pages
  29. or print off the scale shapes.
  30. So, yeah, I'll see you in a few seconds
    with my left
  31. hand, thanks Jedi!
  32. Okay, so here we are for position one.
  33. Position one we start with the second
  34. finger and play up the scale.
  35. Guitar Scale Playing
  36. Come back down
  37. Making sure we start and finish on the
    root note,
  38. also making sure that our fingers curve
  39. up as we go up the scale.
  40. Guitar Scale Playing
  41. Okay, now we are moving up to position two
  42. Move up to here, up to the fifth fret.
  43. Following me here Jedi?
  44. Okay, so now for position two, the root,
  45. the lowest root note is right up here on
    the forth string.
  46. Even if it seems a little but strange, I
    think it's very
  47. important that you start up here on the
    root note.
  48. The reason is that you will hear the major
  49. scale the, do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti-do
  50. idea if you start on the lowest note all
    of the time,
  51. you tend to hear the modes which can be
    useful,
  52. but right now you're learning the major
    scale.
  53. So we start here with the second finger
  54. Guitar Scale Playing
  55. Slight position shift here
  56. Back down the scale
  57. Now at this point, 4th finger on the way
  58. down and 3rd finger on the way up.
  59. Now, I'll just explain that odd fingering
  60. here because this is a little bit unique
  61. to me.
  62. Uhm, I got it off my old teacher.
  63. Thanks John Mc Millan, great stuff man.
  64. Uhm, and if I try and reach over here with
  65. my third finger you can see that the angle
  66. of my hand has to move to reach it.
  67. You don't really want that, especially
  68. when you start going faster.
  69. It makes it quite a pain.
  70. It's ok slowly, but once we get quicker it
  71. makes it really awkward.
  72. So, this way we use the little finger
    there
  73. because the little finger is already in
  74. the right place to go.
  75. We follow up here a little bit, and that's
  76. a really easy transition to make to your
  77. first finger.
  78. Now we could just cramp up here again with
  79. little finger, but it gets a bit squashy
  80. so we use our third finger still there.
  81. Our first finger can always reach back
  82. without the, you can see the flat of my
  83. hand here is not having to move anywhere
  84. for my first finger to reach back.
  85. Cause you always got more flexiblity with
  86. your first finger.
  87. So.. [plays scale]
  88. Making sure again that the fingers round
  89. up when they get to the top and making
  90. sure you watch out that funny note that
  91. changes between the fourth finger and
  92. the third finger. [Plays scale]
  93. Ok, now we move onto the third position.
  94. Ok, we there still with me Jed?
  95. Jed: Right on
  96. Cool Mate.
  97. Ok, now this one. Root note is under
  98. the little finger.
  99. It's pretty straight forward for the
  100. fingering this time.
  101. Each finger gets allocated it's own fret.
  102. Start with the little finger.
  103. [Plays scale]
  104. Pretty straight forward again.
  105. Making sure you start on the lowest root
  106. note. Up as far as you can.
  107. Down as far as you can, and back up and
  108. finishing on the root note.
  109. Ok, now we go onto position 4.
  110. Just a little farther up the neck now.
  111. K, this time we're starting with the
  112. second finger. We're playing here.
  113. [Plays scale]
  114. Again, starting and finishing on the
  115. lowest root note.
  116. Really important.
  117. [Plays scale]
  118. It's worth noticing as well that if you're
  119. playing these scales with a metronome, you
  120. probably want to get up to four notes per
  121. metronome click.
  122. And if you follow the scale shapes that
  123. I've got, you'll see that every scale form
  124. has three notes on each string except for
  125. one string which has two notes on it.
  126. I think that makes a total of seventeen
  127. notes.
  128. And what that means is if you play the
  129. scale up and down that you'll always end
  130. up back on the root note for the beat.
  131. [Plays scale]
  132. You can see that I accented each group of
  133. four then and started and finished on the
  134. same note.
  135. Ok. That was position four.
  136. Now we're going to move up to
  137. position five. Right up the neck now.
  138. Starting with our little finger on the 6th
  139. string.
  140. Play up the scale. [Plays scale]
  141. Ok now, on this girl we've go the same
  142. little trick as we had before with the
    third
  143. finger on the way up and the 4th finger on
  144. the same note on the way back down.
  145. [Plays scale]
  146. Ok, so please, what's really, really
  147. important. After you've finally got those
  148. 5 positions down is that you remember what
  149. I said originally in the lesson 1 for the
  150. major scale.
  151. It's really important that you can use the
  152. scales.
  153. Don't learn lots of scales and not be
    able
  154. to use them. There's absolutely no point.
  155. So learn position one.
  156. Learn to do a solo using the position one
  157. scale.
  158. Then learn position two and then start to
  159. join position one and position two
  160. together.
  161. There's hundreds of different ways of
  162. doing it. You can slide between them, you
  163. can shift between them.
  164. It's really a good exercise just to sit
  165. down and start playing one and try to get
  166. into position two and back.
  167. [Plays scales]
  168. Just trying to combine position one and
  169. position two. Once you feel really
  170. confident that you can combine positions
  171. one and two, then you'd add the third
  172. position and start to combine position one
  173. with postion two into three.
  174. [Plays scale]
  175. Etc... And keep joining them together.
  176. Don't just sit there and play the scales
  177. up and down. It's really, really just a
  178. not happening thing.
  179. Ok.
  180. In the next lesson, I'll show you some
  181. ways to break up the major scale. Into
  182. making it sound like music instead of it
  183. sounding like a scale, so I'll see you for
  184. part three in a minute.
  185. Cheers. Take care.
