Practicing guitar music scales is one of the key elements to
learning the basics of guitar.
A major reason why many guitarists never master guitar scales is
that they try to learn too many at once.
How do you master scales? The answer is simple - set specific
goals for your guitar practice.
This is achieved by writing down things such as?- How much
time each day you will devote to scale practice.
Outside of Western music, an enormous number of other scales
exist, but most guitarists will be concerned primarily with the
details of Western music.
The key to learning scales is select one scale on focus all your
attention on that scale over the entire fretboard.
If you listen to carefully to many guitarists, they may know lots
of scales, but they definitely haven't mastered any. They just
sound like they are running up-and-down scales.
They're not using the scales to create music, but rather they're
playing scales as if the scale were part of an Olympic event,
seeing who can play the fastest.
Scales are used to play solos and melody lines. Once you
realize that 22 fret guitar scales system is certainly the
easiest way to learn and play scales, you will throw away every
other book of lessons on the subject that you have ever bought.
We're currently working on unlocking the entire fretboard with
our guitar scales 22 fret system. Ultimately we're working
towards total freedom for musical expression.
