Thanks for sharing this. These types of visual patterns are very common in the rock and blues world. I had never seen it presented like this for the Segovia scales. It will save me time for sure.

I'm wondering if I should show the patterns to my teacher or just let him think I can learn them incredibly fast. :mrgreen:

Thank you sir David! :)
I also agree to their comments! A beginner like me would find these useful! :) Thanks for saving us time! I really am not into memorizing all the 'scales' and stuff. But rather, I go for concept explanation, and digging in with the fundamentals - and how those can be reapplied to other stuff. "Cross-functional" concepts I mean,.

Many thanks for making this information available. I am just resuming my study of the guitar after 20 years of inaction. Back then I found scales 'bitter sweet'. To me they represent the concept of 'no pain no gain'. Just like in life there is no free lunch so with the guitar it is hard to make progress without the hard work of scales. Your resource is much appreciated. Thanks

Scales are so important in becoming acquainted with the fretboard, and yet they never seem to be popular with students, who are more for playing the works without really realizing the true value of them.
All great players have practised for hours and hours setting their goal to executing them with absolute perfection. The use of a metronome is highly recommended, as it will instil confidence and help play the right tempo when studying at very slow speed and then at very high speed.
Thanks you for posting them...It is time for me to take time to incorporate them into my practice once again. :)
:merci:

I join the crowd in giving my thanks for the scale charts. The ability to access these charts was a motivating factor for me to join this forum.. Now that I am "in" I realize what an absolutely great site this is. Now if I could also find a comparable site for the blues I would be in hog heaven.
