So i wake up this morning, and recieve a scale book as one of my gifts for christmas. so i start looking inside it. I was looking at the pentatonic scales, noticing how they fit together nice. but when i started looking at other scales, i was confused. I don't know which scale to start from, which ones go together, and how they go together. could someone please explain to me how this works so i don't end up throwing this book in the trash?

i scanned the lydian scale out of the book, here's the link:


thanks for the help,
The same idea applies to every scale - the scale is just a selection of 5,6,7, etc notes, and then you have to learn the different fingerings for them.

Check out the theory links in my sig and then post in MT if you still have problems in a couple of weeks.
