DIaGRam1 tHe notes of C maJor
For the purposes of this study, we are going to confine our approach to the notes of C Major shown here. The note-scheme is based mainly around the three-notes-per-string scale pattern for C Major used in the previous lesson (black notes). The grey notes serve as ways of extending this basic pattern to produce four-notes per string: to be played by either moving the fretting hand back and forth, or by utilising picking-hand tapping. The white notes will be used occasionally when re-fingering certain arpeggio sequences in order to make them easier to play (rather than get saddled with inconsistent and challenging fingerings by staying confined to the traditional threenotes-per-string pattern).
