thats a A natural minor scale


if i moved that to 478 and do it that way is it a B natural minor scale. Are they shapes like pent scale patterns.

You know the minor pentatonic?

Well, the natural minor scale is just the same as the minor pentatonic with the 2nd and 6th scale degrees added back in.

Thats not A min either, try taking your minor pentatonic and adding the missing notes back in

Edit - you've got an Eb on the A string...and I haven't looked further up yet
You've duplicated the E on the G string with one on the B string
You've got an F# on the B string

A min is A B C D E F G

Try getting a piece of paper and drawing the fretboard on it, then draw on it you A major scale on each string individually, from left to right - I'd use either scale degrees or note names, so you can look at it later and see what notes are where, rather than a bunch of dots. Might make it clearer.

But not now - get some sleep first

Edit - eh? Your low E is at the top of the dig? K, sec and I'll have another look

ok so c maj can go with A min. makes sence. each major has a minor. to go with just root is 2 frets down from the major. Juast confuses me

Ok turned it over and you're pretty darn close

E 578 = A B C
A 578 = D E F
D 579 = G A B
G 579 = C D E
B 568 = E F G
e 578 = A B C

You've duplicated an E, but other than that its all good.

And yes, A minor is the same notes as C Major - which means its the relative minor of C Maj (same notes, different root)

Edit: root of relative minor is 3 frets down from the major - go get some sleep

^But playing through a scale that way? It's easier to play it in order. IMO it makes it easier to distinguish the sound and the notes. If you're just starting out and are playing the notes in a random order figuring out keys could be confusing.

TS, learn the notes on the fretboard up to the 12th fret. (above that they just repeat)

Then get all the keys and the chords contained in each key, and print it out. Then play the scales on your guitar in order. After a while you'll start to hear the difference between keys and tonality.
