Scales across strings 3

Animated Scales across strings 3 tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

Following from the previous Fundamentals exercises on playing across strings here we look at the A major scale. We first encountered the A major scale when looking at Intervals.

Remember that the A major scale uses only 8 of the notes from the A chromatic scale. We omit certain notes. Playing the A major scale along one string makes it easier to see the intervals (gaps) between notes. However, it is more practical to play across the strings.

After we play the A major scale along 1 string, we play it again across the strings. Remember - these are exactly the same notes. Spend time and learn this scale as it is one of the main scales!

The notes are:

Along: root A - B - C# - D - E - F# - G# - A (octave)

Across: root A - B - C# - D - E - F# - G# - A (octave)
