What would be the change to the Major scale if I played it in drop D? or any scale for that matter. I don't know why, but I can't seem to figure out an easy way to play scales in drop D or any drop tuning that is similiar to D A D G B E.

help, link, or diagram appreciated.


Really sorry if this is the wrong forum, or has been asked more than enough times to count... I couldn't find this answer, not even in lessons. I've been looking for an hour

Scales are notes; just play the notes. When it comes to box patterns, you just move the notes on the low D string up a step.

Another dumb question... In D I move it down a whole step, right?

No. You play your scale patterns normally on the A, D, G, B, and high E strings, but move everything on the Low E string up two frets.

ARe you asking when you play in the key of D, or when you drop the string to D?

If you are in drop d, then the notes for both the 4th and 6th strings are the same. Thats how I remember it at least.

Precisely.
