The formula for the A blue scale is taking in from the major from the aim is going to be taking the first, the flat, third, the fourth, the flat, fifth, the fifth and the flat seventh off the scale. So first note would be a flat 30 c. The fourth is Dean flat. With this even glance way have the fifth of me. Okay? And then G natural is the flat seventh. Okay, so one flat. 34 flat. 55 flat set. With this form of here, we're gonna be going all across the fretboard addition. We're gonna be 1/5 position of the guitars. Let me My first finger will be on the fifth. Fret. OK, Fifth position means that that's where your first finger is. So all the other figures and consequence are covering for friends. So the second finger is gonna be on the sixth Fret. Okay. The third finger on the seventh threat and the fourth thing around the eighth fret. So that's what I mean. If you download in the project section the music, you'll have the music and the tabs indicate everything for you. So we'll start off right away. Six straight, fifth position. We have one form. Then on the 5th 3123 On the fourth string 13 on the third string. 134 On the second string 14 and then one of the first. Then we'll go backwards for one on the second four. Free one on the 3rd 31 on the fourth. Okay, 321 on the fifth and 41 on the sixth straight. So I'm gonna play that for you. Way, way. Move to the next position, which is C So I'm gonna slide up to the APIs is with our first finger. I want to go one free form on the six string. Then we're gonna move back one position on the fifth string. OK, so we're going back to seven. Positioning go Run for 14 on the fourth straight. 123 on the third string to four is gonna be on the second string and two on the first. Okay, then we go backwards for two on the 2nd 3 to 1 on the third, full one on the fourth for one of the fifth. Go back to the eighth position of the sex ago. 431 I'll play that for you. Not a lot of people when they get here to the first rate before they want to three. And then they moved back to a 2131 When you're moving around the friend. Well, that's okay. Figuring optional. But if you're gonna stay in one position that I recommend, just do this. The finger I just gave you. OK, our next. Okay, so we have the next one will be D. Okay, we're gonna move up on the six drinks, so we're always using six thing as a base here. Okay, so 66 string And what? 10th position.

We're gonna put them all together in the three off the scale as reactive plasters. Well, 43 office and then back with that little beast that we have in the back, Remember? Even here, it's like regular melon moles you could stop off in any of those positions. Play one of the goals that you've already learned. This is just putting them together all in one scale, just to give you the exercise to move around on the fretboard. So 63 fifth position for his figure.

So you're still in second position? Slide forward to the surfaces with 22231 And that slide in the fifth position for one for 31 332141 Just with that first morning. Okay, I just showed that little piece of first. Same thing that I did over here, right? It says that missing strings of the back to go further back to finish the scale. I just played off one more time. We've completed the eight moves scale. I am giving you specifications with a certain finger re. If you find a work around it and you want to try a different fingering try. That's the whole thing about the idea about doing these scales give you the specific needs to start doing it. Then you experiment and find other movements that you could do one other strings Instead, I like using the lead with the first fingerling instead of sliding with my fourth I really don't like sliding forward with my fourth likes language for with my first. Um, so you'll see me do that a lot, huh? But like I said, you could work on it by yourself and see if you can find other figuring for yourself. That's what That's the whole thing about playing guitarist. Finding a comfortable situation for yourself when you're playing, obviously taking consideration that you're using four fingers all the time. Okay, I don't like using stretches. I'm very off. I do when I need them but really need them. But I don't like scales with stretches. I prefer moving my hand anyway. You take your time when you study these things and we'll see you on the next blue scale or another class that I will be put a publishing. Remember, I also have the beginning broke guitar lesson. So take a look at those also for those who wanted there, not also reuse it. If you don't read museum, just using the tabs with these lessons here, I can start a beginner for us just to learn how to read the notes while you're playing specific things, and you'll learn some simple tools. Also play like a globally, will you? Things would be a second beginning guitar lessons to But anyway, we'll see how the next last Take care. Have a great week, Day, whatever it is for you.
