Okay, now we've done
A with the major scales with
the chord shapes up the neck.
So now we're gonna do, we're gonna
move to E, and we're gonna do that.
We're gonna work these scales
all the way up the neck.
So, we've done open E in
the beginner's segment.
So, we're gonna move to this partial here.
So, we're gonna start on open E.
we're gonna do a close position.
[SOUND] We're gonna start open, first
finger, third finger, fourth fret and
then the little finger's going to hit
the A string rather than going open.
So, we're gonna go.
And that covers that partial chord there.
So then we're gonna move
up to about your three.
And we're gonna play
over this C shape here.
[SOUND] So we'll start here,
[SOUND] like we have on the other chords.
And we'll do first finger.
And that covers that chord.
Then we're gonna come up
here to this A shape.
[SOUND] We're gonna cover these two.
So we'll start on B with our second
finger covering this position.
So that covers that.
So now we're gonna move up to this, our
one over three, or our full A position.
we'll start on E with the little finger.
And then we're right back
up here to our E bar chord.
So we repeated ourselves all
the way back up to the 12th fret.
So that's E.
Now we're gonna move to C,
and then we'll do F.
So, moving right along here.
