So
we'll do a 2 octave C major scale and
obviously these exercises we want you
to practice in all the keys but we're just
using C as our starter key.
Here, so now I'm gonna switch positions
and
I'm gonna play the C on the E string,
starting with my first finger.
So this is gonna be a little different
because I'm gonna stretch out
to get the whole tones for the first part
of the scale.
And then I'm gonna make a shift.
To get to the two octaves as I get
to the last part of the scale so
I'm starting with my first finger
on the E string on the C [SOUND].
So we'll do that one more time.
And obviously there are different places
that you can make your shifts as well but
I'm gonna start in this position.
