So now we'll talk about scales.
The reason we want to learn scales is
because scales is how we pretty much
get around the neck and learn all of our
positions and, and
the notes that we need to learn so.
For instance, the C-major scale, the
starting with the second finger on the
All the notes lay under the finger in that
So I like to practice with a metronome
just to keep it it's good to learn
how to play with a metronome, first of
all, and it keeps everything even.
What you'll notice is when you go to your
from 8th notes to 16th notes,
the tendency is to rush, and people tend
to rush in 32nd notes even faster,
you so its, its, the metronome really
helps to keep you in time.
Start with the metronome setting of 60
beats a minute.
And I will demonstrate playing the C-major
First staring with 8th notes, then going
to 8th note triplets, then 16th notes,
then 32nd notes.
Again, eighth notes.
Make it musical.
Tend to see the rush,
listen to the click, 32nd notes
So as you could see,
in the first position, the C-scale,
We have all these notes available to us.
This, in this octave.
And then this octave, starting on.
So actually, if we start on the G.
We can do the C-scale and
half of it below, so we're starting off
of course we vary, do variable positions
and, and or vary the notes
And of course we can make up
different combinations of these exercises.
And of course, if you slide up to the
All those notes are available under,
under the fingers in that one position.
And the same when you slide up to D.
the object, the object of the game is to
practice these scales in all the keys, so
that actually you, you're familiar with
every note on the finger board.
Just do all the way up and down the finger
Using this one position
And so on.
