Here's the next step in learning our Major Scales. This lesson video is all about going through our D Major Scale on a set of two strings (1-2, 2-3, 3-4, 4-5, 5-6) with three notes per string. This is an excellent way to visualize our scales horizontally (across the fretboard) as well as vertically (using our CAGED shapes).

The CAGED shapes work in the order it's acronym is for our key of D: C-A-G-E-D.

I have a Play Along and a PDF of each string set. Try them using all of our scales/modes (Natural Minor, Harmonic Minor, Mixolydian, Dorian, etc.) in a variety of keys.

This is the next step in really internalizing our scales... Dig!
