Moving Scale Pattern 52
We are on to moving our final scale pattern in the 7 Majors system. Yes, it’ll be a wrap.
When we move scale pattern 52 up one fret from the B♭ heel, what were opens are now 1 frets. 12 for 1 = movable to every position → 12 Major scales.
For the key of B♭ [heel, the lowest 52 can go], we could play the scale in P0 [index on the nut] and this would show us the movable fingering.
+1 = B Major
We begin the B Major scale in P1, shifting to P2 for strings 2 and 1. It’s scale pattern 52 moved up one fret. We’ll stick with our ‘alpha-tone’ tone order (start on lowest key tone – B in this instance, play to highest, then lowest, and back to the starting tone). Play the scale as shown in the tab. This scale form can be played in this manner, in every position, and thus every key.
B is the “opposite” of B♭ Major. B Major has 5 sharps (F♯, C♯, G♯, D♯, A♯). In B♭, the F, C, G, D, & A are naturals. In B♭, the flats are B♭ & E♭. In B, only the B & E are naturals.
We looked at the 3 tones per string version in the last session.
