I am a beginner player and bought my first scales book today. In this book they have scales in tabs, and the root note is circled. I just don't know what it means when, for example, the 1st, 8th, and 15th notes are circled. I was wondering if you guys could help me out. Thanks ahead of time!
Thanks. So the sound is different, but not played any differently? Gosh, I feel like such a noob. ^^;
You know how there is a LOW E string and a HIGH E string?
^^ It's the same note, but a different octave.

All the root notes are same in a particular scale.

Hope This Helped,
