The major scale is basis for all movement and study on the guitar. As guitar is such a pattern driven instrument, scales are integral to navigating the fingerboard for location of notes, chords, sight reading, chord scale relationships and improvisation. The fingerboard on guitar
is the most difficult to learn. Scales are the most important area of study for any kind of technical and theoretical advancement on guitar as well as any future study of chord scale relations and improvisation.
For intermediate to advanced guitarists, this book introduces the student to a traditional approach which combines Classical Violin with Classical North Indian and Contemporary Guitar and diatonic harmony in a manner which promotes physical memorization and mental awareness.
