In this lesson, Will discusses how he approaches positional playing within the context of C Dorian scale.
Why we’re focusing on one scale only
We’re only focusing on one scale for this master class to keep things simple. If you’re a serious guitar player we encourage you to apply the same principles to other scales and use the rule of relative major/minor harmony to use the same positions to play over major7 chords. A quick google search will bring up scale graphs for any scale you’d like to learn – we’ve got you covered for the most useful scale to know, Dorian.
Download the scale graph below for a roadmap of C Dorian across your entire fretboard then scroll down for a video and TAB for each position.
In the following lessons you’ll learn how to connect these positions but for now make sure you’re super familiar with them all.
Use the Scale graph and TAB above to get familiar with C Dorian all across your guitar.
In the next lesson you’ll learn how to combine positions.
