hey i got taught a scale but i cant remember what its called or how to do it.
i cant remember which frets but i know its around the middle of the fret board.

on the 1st string, you go for example 5, then 7. i dont know if they are the correct frets, but you go from one fret, skip one, and then to the next.

on the 2nd string, you do the same, but after you hit the 7 (example), you put fingers on both the 8 and 10.

then on the next string, you go 8, then 10.

something like that.

as i said i dont know the frets, but thats the pattern.

please help, thanks.

Erm, could you perhaps be a lot more clear?

It's hard to understand what you are saying.

Uh... sounds like some kind of major scale pattern.

Maybe something like this...


[B][U]A Major Scale Pattern[/U][/B].

e|-----------------------------------4-5-|
B|------------------------------5-7------|
G|----------------------4-6-7------------|
D|--------------4-6-7--------------------|
A|------4-5-7----------------------------|
E|-5-7-----------------------------------|


Non?

ok ill just tab the first few strings.


D|----------------------------------8----10
A|-------5-7-----------8+10--------------
E|-5-7--------------------------------------
#7
o i think i know how it starts now, i just played it and it sounds about right.


G|-----------------------------------------------------5-7-----
D|------------------------------------------5-7----------------
A| ------------3-5-----------5+7 (hold both at same time)
E| -3-5----------------------------------------------------------

if i continue on to the last 2 strings it doesnt sound right. but does anyone recognize that cord?

^ What do you mean hold 5 and 7 at the same time??? Thats only going to play one note, the 7th fret which is a E note. Its not going to play the D note.

Again, there is no scale like that. It only has 5 notes, which would make it a pentatonic scale, but it doesnt fit into ANY of the pentatonic scales.

5 and 7 at the same time, as in put your fingers on both of them while playing the a string.

well my teacher did say its a pentatonic scal (i remember now). so is there any scale thats anything like that?
#10
^
Wait I know what it is.
Its the C Pentatonic Major.

e|---------------------------8-10--|
B|----------------------8-10-------|
G|----------------5-7-9------------|
D|------------5-7------------------|
A|------3-5-7----------------------|
E|--3-5----------------------------|


You dont play the 5 and 7 at the same time, you play the 5 THEN then 7 straight after.

#12

e|------------------------5-8--|
B|--------------------5-8------|
G|----------------5-7----------|
D|------------5-7--------------|
A|------3-5-7------------------|
E|--3-5------------------------|


Pentatonic Major is the only one that follows that "pattern" you gave us.
