Understanding the Guitar Scales and How its created

When you have understood upon the fretboard and its relation to the keyboard, further you will feel comfortable in knowing more on this that how the scales are defined and how easily you can play any scale. Scales are named after the node from where it starts. Eg: a C scale would mean, that you are starting from the C node of the guitar/keyboard and thus playing C D E F G A B. You can see below the fretboard from the previous lesson and from the entire seven musical nodes C D E F G A B, we will elaborate and also consider the nodes in between these seven nodes, which we skip and dont play in order to play any actual scale. In the below image, focus on the string B, and start from fret number 1. That is, the C node. This is just to elaborate as I said, all the nodes which are played as well as skipped when playing a C scale are: C C# D D# E F F# G G# A A# B (Focus on String B in the above image).

According to its website, Guitar Apprentice “ain’t no video game,” it’s a free application that can be downloaded to a PC or Mac. Instead of a controller, players use their real guitar to play the songs that come up on the screen. There is a free song every week, and a monthly subscription gets you access to the whole catalog. The application guides players with colors that correspond to their fingers and shows the neck of the guitar on-screen with the chords. The screen setup looks a little bit like “Guitar Hero” except, instead of rocker avatars, there are close-ups on each corner of the screen that show how the chords are being played. Classic songs are featured in the catalog with vocals, but they don’t distract from the chords. Each level allows users to play certain chords, and as they progress to higher le
