What you need to know about the various scales

Just how many types of scales are there? Which ones should I know?

Today I want to simplify those answers and make it easier to understand. Each icon will define a type of scale. These will be the only basics ones you’ll need to know to play most music. There’s only 5, and they are as follows.

Major Scale

Major Scales consist of 7 notes. The pattern is W-W-H-W-W-W-H Example C major scale
C D E F G A B C

Minor Scale

Major Scales consist of 7 notes. The pattern is W-H-W-W-H-W-W Example C minor scale
C D Eb F G Ab Bb C

Major Pentatonic Scale

Much like the major scale but a few notes taken out, so instead of 7 there is 5. Eaxmple C major pentatonic scale
C Eb F G Bb

Minor Pentatonic Scale

Much like the minor scale but a few notes taken out, so instead of 7 there is 5. Eaxmple C major pentatonic scale
C D E G A

Blues Scale

This unique scale is based off the minor/major pentatonic scale plus 1 one note.
Example C minor blues scale C Eb F Gb G Bb
Example C major blues scale C D Eb E G A

You can go to YouTube, check out Facebook groups, or maybe read some blogs. There’s definitely a lot of options for learning.

Recently I checked out this well structured step-by-step book. It was in every sense for the absolute beginner. And though, my YouTube channel is geared for the novice, I knew right away, this book is an essential guide for learning guitar skills, especially for my audience.
