This is the B Minor Scale.
Now B minor as you'll remember,
you can figure out the relative major
If you're in B here on the 4th fret.
You've got a nice action with B chord,
B minor chord right here [SOUND] by
leaving the high D string open.
[SOUND] And the 2nd string, which is a B,
[SOUND] You remember if you go up three
frets, you get the relative major.
[SOUND] So that's a D.
So you know, this B minor scale has all
the same notes as a D major scale,
just starting and ending on B.
So we can use our open B string to start
and play this B minor scale, like this.
You start with an open B on the 5th
[SOUND] 2nd fret open D.
2nd fret, 4th fret open G.
[SOUND] 2nd fret open B.
And you can continue on.
All the way up to [SOUND] this
So, from the F-sharp all the way down to
the low B sounds, like this.
So you can see that there's a lot of
open strings involved in this B minor
[SOUND] so what I would do is try
practicing this a little bit.
And [SOUND] You can combine some of these
minor scales [SOUND]
with the major, you know?
So if you wanted to say, do a little
you could go between B minor [SOUND] and D
gonna really get
you in the feel
of using the same
So one thing I actually read very recently
When you're playing over some chord
it's nice to think of just the key you're
Don't worry about as the chords change,
trying to keep up and
each time the chord changes, you have to
think in a new way.
Just realize the key that you're in.
In this instance, B minor and
you can use that B minor scale generally
over most of the chords.
So you don't have to be switching your
thinking every time a chord changes.
If you have the, if you are familiar with
the key you're in, in that scale,
that's gonna be able to be played over all
the diatonic chords.
So that's just a little tip on playing
over chord changes and the B minor scale.
