From this cheat sheet alone, you will learn:
Some people take a very factual approach to their guitar fretboard, trying to learn every note in the same way you might try to learn the alphabet. However, this method depends to a high degree on memorization, and takes a long time.
In contrast, when you begin to see the guitar scales as PATTERNS that are present on your fretboard, then you can quickly eliminate 67% of the memorization required! In addition, guitar scale patterns give your fingers something that they can practice over and over, in order to become very fast and fluid in your playing.
The power of this approach is that the lead guitar scales and patterns can be applied all over the guitar neck, so once your fingers are familiar with a pattern, you can very easily move it (transpose) at will to wherever you need it.
Talk about a more efficient approach to the guitar!
So you’re interested in taking your guitar playing to the next level, and want to learn how to solo or add riffs and embellishments to your playing?
Well, Joe Satriani once said that the solo IS the scale. In other words, you can’t separate the two. Learning your guitar scale patterns is absolutely vital to becoming a good guitarist.
Understanding the scale, where it comes from, and how to apply that in your playing is super important, regardless of the instrument you play. On guitar, this task is made even easier by identifying simple patterns that you can use to learn your guitar scales all over the fretboard.
