Cat On Strat Guitar Scales
Complete Guitar Scales Guide For Both Teachers And Students
Playing or teaching guitar involves 6 basic fundamentals:
1) Getting started (learning names and definitions)
2) Scales (playing single notes)
3) Chords (playing multiple notes)
4) Techniques (complex methods for playing scales and chords)
5) Reading music (how to read the “code” of music)
6) Writing music (how to write the “code” of music).
By dividing guitar theory this way the student or teacher can digest more clearly the scope of all that they need to learn or teach. This book is designed to clear up the confusion of guitar theory and remove any boring aspects, all the while giving insightful knowledge of music and the technique of playing guitar. When finished the guitarist should have all the knowledge needed to develop their own style, jam with other musicians while knowing exactly what is going on theoretically, and be able to compose complex music in rock, blues, jazz, pop, folk and heavy metal. Easy concise exercises help the student develop the skills to execute the licks and passages needed to express oneself and help any teacher using this as a teachers guide to layout clear concise goals and objectives.

In the end you will find here a user friendly, all inclusive method on playing or teaching the guitar scales. I have had much success with this approach over the years with all my students both young and old. Now is your chance to learn guitar scales the right way, easy, complete and frustration free use this guide to teach yourself or use as an all inclusive teachers reference guide.
3-Shape Fretboard is for intermediate to advanced guitarists interested in learning how to work out guitar scales and arpeggios for themselves. Being able to create guitar scales and arpeggios yourself can give a better understanding, while knowing the logic behind them can make them more meaningful and therefore easier to learn.
The Major Scale: It all starts with the major scale, the basis of music. All other scales and arpeggios can be defined in comparison to this scale. The book reflects this in practical terms by categorising the major scale into three different fundamental shapes, which once understood, can be used as templates to figure out other guitar scales and arpeggios.
The CAGED System: This system can help to understand the larger CAGED guitar scale shapes in terms of their single octave components. For example, the five CAGED shapes for the major (or minor) pentatonic scales that each contain twelve notes, can be learned as only two shapes of five notes, which are joined end to end to give us the five full CAGED shapes.
>> Various 3-Note per string scales can be understood as the same combination of single octave component types.
>> See how basic major and minor chords are formed from within scales and look at triad and 7th chord based harmony.
>> Each scale and arpeggio type has a question, with the answer at the back of the book in guitar tablature.
>> 3-Shape Fretboard contains 600 fretboard diagrams.
>> Intervals are grouped together in the context of the scales they are intended for, which can provide a foundation for learning intervals individually on the fretboard.
Please Note: The eBook includes diagrams not suitable for smaller screens.
"A logical and thorough approach to understanding scales, intervals and arpeggios on the guitar. All related to the universal CAGED idea of fretboard layout. Plenty to study and apply to your playing." -- Hedley Timbs, BA(Mus), Grad.Dip. Teaching (New Zealand)"I think the 3 pattern approach is very interesting and well documented. There is lots of good material and I like the approach. Very well organised, complete and clear with plenty of diagrams." -- Fabien Aubry, Composer, Arranger & Producer (Switzerland)
★ Combine musical intervals, chords, arpeggios, key modes and practice mantras to let you play more freely on a fretboard
★ Practical examples and licks enhance your playing techniques as well as the familiarity of scale graphics.
This handbook uses the most effective memory technique; the concept of “Image Memorization Method" (according to experiences, it can be achieved in 10 minutes) can help your brain memorize scale graphics in the fretboard in a short time and also to teach you enhancing practices and methods of application. In addition to stimulating your thinking of musical notes and fingerings on the fretboard, the most important thing is to help you be able to cleverly apply scales and chords as well as their matching via the familiarity of the fretboard.
During performances, it is the main goal of this handbook that you know the scale positions where your fingers are located anytime.
In addition, this second version handbook has more demonstrations than the first version as well as clearer and plenty of explanations. In addition to the faster and efficient memory fretboard, the rich contents lively combine various kinds of practice as well as thinking methods. And this better allows you to obtain great achievements in such as intervals, chords, arpeggios, key modes as well as musical concepts.
● Just want to play easy musical notes but you can never find the right positions
● Want to leave playing and singing along level but you cannot find the directions
● Want to improvise solo performances but you often get the musical notes wrong
● Encounter a situation where your hands slide to a different fret position then you don’t know how to play
● Have a bunch of fingerings which the more you memorize them the more you are confused
● Want to know more about the guitar
One book “Building Block Image Memory Methods” can fix all problems!
