Guitar Scale Patterns

Man Fights Off Police With Lightsaber… (and other guitar tips)

A friend sent me this crazy news story (it’s completely true) about a guy who went into a Toys’R’Us in Portland, grabbed a lightsaber, and began swinging it at customers.

Presumably, it was a toy.

But the story never really said…

Anyhow, the police showed up and tried to taser the guy.

And get this – he defended himself by knocking the taser wires away with his lightsaber!

You just can’t make this kinda stuff up!

In fact, it reminded me of my friend who adamantly refused to accept the reality of scale patterns being helpful on the guitar.

I’ve talked about him before.

He’s the guy that could play kinda well, but never really knew what he was doing…

Hunting and pecking for the next notes in his guitar solos, “feeling” his way by ear.

Sure, it kinda worked for him, but its a bit like swinging a toy lightsaber…

It just isn’t going to get you that far!

He would have been so much better off today if he’d simply learned a couple basic scale patterns to help with his playing.

Then all his solos could have been anchored off a set of notes that he KNEW were ready for him.

He could have visualized his riffs right out of the patterns, rather than “feeling” whether he needed to go up one fret or two to the next good sounding note.

In short, it would have been like driving a car in an unfamiliar city WITH A NAVIGATOR beside him.

That’s what playing with scale patterns does for you.

Hmm, well I just thought I’d throw that out there again.

If you’re skeptical this patterns thing can help – then I’ve just taken away all the risk.

Do I have to learn every note on the fretboard?

I got a question from a subscriber, asking this:

“Is it necessary to learn every note on the fretboard?”

My answer to that is the classic: It Depends.

Because it does depend… on whether or not you want to play that thing very well!

If you’re content to only ever pick away at the guitar in a haphazard and half-hearted kind of way, then no, you don’t really need to learn all the notes.

In fact, probably just a handful of chords will do.

Don’t get me wrong – there are plenty of people out there who can only play a few chords on the guitar and enjoy themselves quite nicely at that level. That’s cool.

But please don’t confuse that with KNOWING how to play WELL.

If you’ve ever wanted to get beyond that most basic of playing levels, then YES, you need to learn somethings about your instrument.

It’s like learning to drive standard, and asking if you need to know what the gear numbers mean.

Anyone who has ever driven standard will quickly agree with me that it makes a BIG difference if you shift into fifth by accident instead of second!

In a vehicle, not knowing the gears and their relation to each other could get you into an accident…

Thankfully, the stakes are lower with the guitar, but the principle is the same.

The notes on the fretboard aren’t mysterious secret agents, wearing black hats and running around changing position on you every time you pickup the guitar.

They’re all in order, and they stay in the same place!

On top of that, they’re arranged in patterns which makes it quick to learn a whole lot of scales in a very short time

… with very little memorization required.

If you’ve ever felt intimidated at the prospect of learning the fretboard…

Or perhaps you started once, only to quickly get confused and drop it shortly after…

Then take heart.

The fretboard CAN be learned.

It ISN’T rocket science.

And I’ve explained the whole thing in a nice easy-going two hour video, which you can find here.

Yeah, people say I’m easy going hehe 🙂
