Hey,

My guitar teacher taught me the major scale in the following position. While reading on scales on the internet, all the major scale fingering is different from what i learned. Is this a good or bad way to play the major scale?

NOTE: the formatting is screwed up..... it didn't preserve my spacing... but, i play the scale starting at the low E string and moving upwards to the high E string

Here's the F major scale i learned:

E 3 5 6
B 3 5 6
G 2 3 5
D 2 3 5
A 1 3 5
E 1 3 5
Gibson Les Paul 60's Neck
Fender Blues Junior
Boss BD-2 - Keeley Phat Mod
Vox V848 Wah
EH Small Clone

That last note should be 6, not 7.

Aside from that, this is an acceptable way to play the scale.

You should know, however, that a scale is not a position or a fingering or a box. Anything that goes F G A Bb C D E F is an F major scale (yours is still F major since it simply adds notes after than highest F to show all acceptable notes in the position). Your fingering is just as acceptable as a scale that starts on the 8th fret on the A string.

If you want your text to look nice and neat, quote my post and look at what I did with your text.


E 3 5 6
B 3 5 6
G 2 3 5
D 2 3 5 
A 1 3 5
E 1 3 5
