This is in the Key of C major, you may do this in every key signature. But learn the key of C major first. I have been teaching 12 guitar students a week, and wanted to see if this is worth showing to them. I believe everyone can progress from this simple lesson because it is using all the notes in the key signature in each string instead of just going up and down in a boxed scale. You do not have to stop at the fret I have labeled in fact I would prefer you go all the way up to the last fret on your guitar. Please let me know what you think of the drill so I can find out if it is worth showing to students.

    Thank you for all your comments, I like that its not just good job but helping me to find new and interesting ways to make it better. All comments make great points and I personally will try to keep posting my lessons on here to get feedback on improving my lessons. Thanks again. Chris Neal AKA BasementRecords

    i like it. Students can definitely learn and understand scales better by adding this way. The best thing for soloing is to know the entire scale on the entire fretboard and that is very difficult to do with box patterns. Much better to understand the strings

    Sure I think it is useful simply for demonstrating the many options available for solos/improv, also to help them "see" how the strings relate to each other. I would probably change it up a little bit though in terms of not using the same pattern on each string. Maybe a follow-up lesson where you do more of a straight run, or even descending pattern something like that
