Fingerstyle Major Chord Scale Relations (Folk Guitar Lesson FO-104) How to play

In Guitar Lesson #5 in the Folk Fingerstyle Module for intermediate players we check out the relationship between our open major chords and major scale in the Key of C. This is a really great way to start learning chord melody playing and will help you see the way a “key” works with the diatonic chords and the major scale. Works in Folk of course but the concept moves into the jazz and pop melody styles. Whole series will be on the web site and a DVD is available with some bonus material! See the web site for more details!Taught by Justin Sandercoe. Full support at the justinguitar web site where you will find hundreds of lessons on a wide range of subjects, and all the scales and chords that you will ever need! There is a great forum too to get help, no matter what the problem. And it is all totally free, no bull. No sample lessons, no memberships, no free ebook. Just tons of great lessons πŸ™‚ To get help with this lesson (and for further info and tabs), find the Lesson ID in the video title (like ST-667 or whatever) and then look it up on the Lesson Index page of Have fun .

    I’ve? been practicing this so far with an alternating bass while running the scale from high G to the open G and back. I can do so in C, G, and Am pretty well. Still working on the F. I’m looking forward to being able to play something like the experimental bits you showed for C and G here. I think for now I should probably practice running your scale patterns (3rds, 4 in a row, etc) with the alternating bass. Can’t wait to see the next installment in this series! πŸ™‚

    Dude i’ve progresed so much in just a few weeks watching UR vids thanks a lot man but to be frank i’ve combined this with all-guitar-chords site it’s awesome for learning music theory. Still your’re making me more confident as a guitar player and i’m having more fun just practicing finger streching or other dreded exercises just because i see progress every day and what is more important it corelates with playing songs, it’s just easier to play? them…THX
