Fretted Frame One as Training Tool & Way to Play in All Keys
Once we have the scale in our hands, we put it to work.
We can look at one frame/fingering/pattern as a training framework and as a way to play in all keys.
Play the shape in every position, as a threaded exercise, in time, thinking about the minor and Major root names. This is similar to what we did with the E form R5 chords.
Your index on string 6 is the minor root. Your pinky or 3 finger is playing the Major root.
If I say, “let’s play in C minor”, you’d move this scale form at P8. 1 finger is on the C tone on string 6, fret 8. Play the pattern. You are in C minor, which is also the key of Eb Major. You’d move the scale to the same position if I said “let’s play in E flat Major”.
