Description of Guitar Scales | Guitar Scale Mastery:
How Would Your Guitar Soloing Improve If You Discovered Exactly How To Play Guitar Scales Over The
Entire Fretboard In A Fluid, Musical And Effortless Way?
Before we go any further, let me say that what you’re about to learn about is definitely NOT suitable
for everyone. And because I don’t want to waste your time, could you please ask yourself three quick
If you answered “Yes” to all three questions…then you
DON’T need to read any further.
Still with me? Yes? Great! Please read the rest of this page carefully. It’s quite long, but it is important
that you read every word. That way you’ll understand exactly what you stand to gain…
Do any of the following problems sound familiar?…
You feel overwhelmed by how many scales you need to
learn. Let’s face it. There are huge numbers of scales that you could learn. It is sometimes
hard to even know where to start! This frustration and overwhelm can make you feel less enthusiastic about
your guitar practice.
You struggle with using scales in a musical way. Often guitar
players don’t make music when they solo. They just sound like they are running up-and-down scales. They
have no idea how to use scales in a musical and interesting way.
You can’t visualize scales effortlessly over the
ENTIRE fretboard. This can be really frustrating! It feels like you’re “locked”
into one part of the fretboard when you solo.
You play scales without truly HEARING
them. Often guitar players haven’t totally internalized the sounds of the scales that they
use. This can lead to a very unmusical and mechanical style of soloing. It can also lead to an inability
to play-by-ear easily and confidently.
You see scales as patterns NOT notes. Many
guitarists make the mistake of only learning scales as patterns. Often they are not totally aware of what
notes are used in the scales. Knowing the notes of a scale can really help you understand where to use the
scale when you are improvising.
You struggle with moving fluidly between different parts of
the fretboard. This lack of ability to play a scale seamlessly over the entire fretboard can
lead to a very rigid, disjointed and unmusical soloing style.
You stuggle with applying scales in real-life playing
situations. Guitarists often find it challenging to jam with other musicians using the
scales that they have just learnt in their practice room. Often they can’t adapt their scale knowledge to
a new and unfamiliar situation. There just seems to be a piece of the puzzle missing.
All of the above problems are frustrating as hell! And do you know what…
Almost everyone struggles with these problems at some stage. You are not alone. 🙂
Solving these problems puts you in the top 5% of guitar players…
Think about your guitar playing friends for a moment. How many of them totally dominate
scales? How many can solo musically, fluidly, all over the fretboard…and make it look as if they
aren’t even trying? My guess would be…
Why is this? There are dozens and dozens of scale books out there. There are also MANY websites that have
information on scales. Why are there so few guitar players who have actually mastered scales?
This question is worthy of some serious thought.
I believe the answer is this…
Very few scale learning methods focus on all five of the essential mastery skills that lead to complete scale
Most scale learning “methods” will give you a whole bunch of scale fingerings. Then they show you some licks.
Maybe they even give you a few backing tracks. Then they leave you to it! This does not work for most
people. It only works for the most talented guitar players out there. Most of us need some extra help!
So what are the five essential mastery skills? Please check out the diagram below…
Please take a couple of minutes to look at it. What do you think it means? Let’s take a closer look now…
EARS: Mastering this skill means that
you have totally internalized the sound of the scale. You know exactly what each note of the scale sounds
EYES: This is your ability to visualize
the scale over the entire fretboard. With this ability you do not have to
think in terms of scale patterns. You can see all the notes of the scale everywhere without having to
FINGERS: This is your technique. It is
your ability to actually physically play the scale anywhere on your fretboard. You
can play the scale starting from any note, any position and any string.
INTELLECT: This is your theoretical
understanding of the scale. At the very least you should understand three main things.
APPLICATIONS: This is your ability to
actually use the scale in a musical way.
So what does all this mean?
If you are lacking in even one area…you don’t really know
the scale fully. It has not yet been internalized. This means that improvising using the scale in a
musical way is challenging, (if not impossible)!
And the scary thing is…
Very few scale learning methods out there help you learn the five essential mastery skills in an organised and
structured way! They make it way too hard and frustrating for you…
You get the idea. They are throwing “learning hurdles” in your way which slows down your progress. That really
Which is why I created the Guitar Scale Mastery membership website…
So here’s exactly what you get when you join Guitar Scale Mastery…
Massive Member Benefit #1: The Guitar Scale Mastery System
In this section of the website you’ll learn the
EXACT system that I use to learn and internalize scales. Whenever I want to learn a
new scale I follow this system. Once you learn the system you’ll be able to apply it to
ANY scale that you want to master.
A few of the overall benefits of learning The Guitar Scale Mastery System include…
You will be able to learn scales on such a deep level that they
“become part of you”.
You will be able to use scales without
You will be able to improvise with scales no matter where you are on
You’ll feel much more confident as an improvising guitarist.
You’ll notice large improvements to your guitar technique, speed and
You’ll solo in a more natural and musical way.
You’ll feel more confident jamming with other musicians.
This system is comprised of five main parts. I call these parts “scale weapons”.
Why weapons? Because it sounds cool! 🙂
Scale Weapon 1: Single String Scales…
If someone held a gun to your head and said that you could only choose ONE method of learning scales, then this
should be it! This is by far the most powerful way to learn scales. It’s also a really neglected method.
You’ll learn a whole heap just from this section alone! 🙂
You’ll learn a very specific 6 step memorization process. This
allows you to deeply imprint into your brain both the note names and scale degrees of ANY scale…over the
entire fretboard. Imagine what this one technique will do for your overall scale knowledge. You’ll
understand scales better, which means you’ll be able to solo in a much more musical way.
You’ll learn the exact foundational technique exercises that I use
myself. These exercises help you to visualize the intervals within the scale. This leads to
you developing an even deeper understanding of the scales that you learn. These exercises also improve
your ability to shift positions fluently. They also really help you to improve the synchronization between
your left and right hands.
Result? You’ll improvise more fluently, and your speed and technique improves.
You’ll learn about 42 different cool sounding melodic
patterns. Most really advanced improvisers will tell you that being able to internalize
melodic motifs is an invaluable skill. In fact…it’s next to impossible to improvise in a musical way
without this skill. By learning about these melodic patterns YOU become one
of the few guitarists that actually make music when they solo.
You’ll learn to create your own unique single string
exercises. This is super important. Why? It helps you to develop your own style of
You’ll learn how to combine melodic patterns. This allows you to
create more interest in your solos. It also allows you to make dramatic improvements to your speed and
overall technique. And finally, it improves your ability to memorize licks and solos.
You’ll learn the 12 “super exercises” that I use when learning
scales. These allow you to internalize the sound of 8 great sounding melodic patterns. They
also improve your finger independence, speed, position shifting ability and the synchronization between
your left and right hands. All of these things help you to improvise in a more fluent, confident and
Scale Weapon 2: Two String Scales…
This approach to learning scales is awesome. It combines some of the benefits of single string scales with some
of the benefits of the more conventional scale patterns. Any scale learning method that doesn’t cover this approach
is robbing you of some valuable learning and progress!
Here’s some of the things that you’ll learn from this section…
You’ll learn about Visual Patterns. These are very powerful visual
tools that enable you to solo in different keys much more easily. This is a
big part of the secret to soloing in all 12 keys.
You’ll learn the exact 6 step method I use to master Visual
Patterns. There’s no point being aware of Visual Patterns if you can’t actually use them! In
this section you’ll drill the Visual Patterns into your brain, allowing you to solo in a very free
You’ll discover 20 powerful two string exercises. These help
improve your alternate picking, hammer-ons, pull-offs and overall technique. They also really improve your
ability to solo anywhere on the fretboard.
Scale Weapon 3: Three-Note-Per-String Scales…
This is an approach used by many guitarists. It is one of the best approaches for anyone interested in speed and
fluidity. It allows you to learn almost any scale over the entire fretboard. It’s also an approach that can be used
for all styles of music. I’ve personally used it for styles ranging from speed metal to traditional jazz. 🙂
Here are a few of the things that you’ll learn…
You will learn how to create your own three-note-per-string
fingerings. This will give you the confidence to construct fingerings for almost any
You will learn the detailed 4 step method for memorizing any scale
fingering. Isn’t it frightening how many scale learning methods give you scale fingerings,
but don’t tell you the best way to memorize them? This does NOT help you one bit. 🙂 In this lesson, I
tell you in great detail about how to easily and permanently imprint any fingering into your brain.
Imagine how this will help you learn scales faster!
You will learn 8 foundational exercises using the 3-note-per-string
approach. These are designed to quickly program scale fingerings into your muscle memory.
They also help you to improve your alternate picking, pull-offs and hammer-ons.
You will learn 8 very powerful triad arpeggio exercises. Guitarists
often struggle to combine arpeggios and scales together in a musical way. These 8 exercises help you
visualize diatonic triad arpeggios within scale fingerings. This really helps you learn to integrate
arpeggios into your playing…which will make your soloing sound more interesting and melodic.
You will learn 8 specific 7th arpeggio exercises. Anyone wanting to
solo in a jazz or fusion style needs to learn these exercises. 🙂 They help you program cool sounding
arpeggios into your fingers. They will also help your picking and fret hand technique tremendously!
You will learn my 8 most favorite intervallic exercises. They sound
great and really help you improve your technique…especially your string skipping!
You will learn how to apply melodic patterns to different
fingerings. This helps you to adapt the ideas you learn to any fingering. What does this do?
It helps improve your technique, scale knowledge and your ability to improvise.
Scale Weapon 4: Ear Training…
Many guitarists sound like they are just running up-and-down scales when they improvise.
Their solos can sound boring, rigid and unmusical. They just don’t make music when they solo.
So what’s the solution? Easy…
It is the master key that unlocks musicality. Seriously. When you do Ear Training
everything about your improvising improves. Why is that? Music is sound. Music
is a hearing art! Doesn’t it make sense that as your ability to hear improves, everything improves
Over the years, I’ve studied many different approaches to Ear Training. Some worked…some were frustrating and
From this intensive study I’ve developed some of my own unique methods that really work. What you get with this
section of the website are the “cliff notes”. You learn only the most effective, powerful and practical approaches
to Ear Training scales.
Let’s take a look at what you’ll learn…
You’ll learn the 4 step process of effective Ear
Training. Using these 4 steps means you’ll learn the sound of scales faster and more
You’ll learn 4 foundation exercises. These simple exercises quickly
imprint the sound of any scale into your brain.
You’ll learn exactly what to do if you can’t sing a note at
all. Many Ear Training methods skip this vital step.
You’ll learn 8 pivot exercises. Don’t know exactly what
every note of a particular scale sounds like? These exercises solve that
You’ll learn to sight sing 32 different melodies…all without having to read
music! By the time you finish this step, the sound of a scale will be tattooed in your brain
for life. Just imagine how this could help your soloing.
You’ll learn two powerful reinforcement exercises. These help you
learn the sound of a scale on an even deeper level.
Scale Weapon 5: Applications…
This is the fifth component of The Guitar Scale Mastery System. This section ensures that
you actually gain experience using the scales that you learn. This is vital! What’s
the point of learning scales if you don’t use them in a musical setting?
You’ll look at three very powerful ways to internalize scales and learn to use them in a musical way…
If you are not using these, then your progress is definitely not as fast as it could be.
IMPORTANT: I’ve deliberately not gone into too much detail here. I don’t
want my competitors to learn these three practice strategies. Yeah, I know they can just join…but I really don’t
want to make it too easy for them! 😉
Massive Member Benefit #2: Guitar Scale Activators…
Guitar Scale Activators are special backing tracks. They are designed to bring to
life (activate) the sound of any scale that you are practicing. This is very powerful. Some of the benefits of
using the Guitar Scale Activators include…
You’ll eventually program chord/scale relationships into your
brain. This means that when you hear a chord you’ll be able to automatically hear the scale
that works over that chord. Obviously, this is a useful skill for any improvising guitarist!
You’ll enjoy practicing scales more. Scale exercises and licks
sound much more interesting when played over the correct Guitar Scale Activator.
You’ll learn to internalize the sounds of scales much
faster. This will help you to improvise more confidently in a much more musical way.
You’ll imprint the sound of chords into your brain. This is
done on a subconscious level. As you practice your brain will be absorbing the sound of the chord used on
the Guitar Scale Activator.
Massive Member Benefit #3: Bonus Updates…
The biggest advantage of an online course over books, DVDs and home study
courses is flexibility. New content and lessons can be added relatively easily. I really want Guitar Scale Mastery
to be a course that improves, grows and evolves over time. To be blunt…I intend this site to totally kick the ass
of any other scale related course. 🙂
As a member you’ll gain access to all of the future Bonus Updates that are created during your
membership period. All at no extra cost to you.
WARNING: Please do NOT read this if you are easily offended…
I know that I WILL offend some people and lose some sales by what I’m about to say.
And I really don’t care. I just feel it needs to be said.
So here it is…
Do not join Guitar Scale Mastery if you are a lazy bum
who dreams of becoming a guitar god with virtually no practice. Keep your money…I don’t want
it. I’m totally serious about this.
If you have the work ethic of a crack-addicted sun-dried tomato, please go to the other websites that
promise you that you’ll be playing like Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Allan Holdsworth or Yngwie Malmsteen in just 20
minutes a day. Or maybe you could just buy one of those ab machines that promise you washboard abs in just 30
seconds a day. Give me a freakin’ break…
Gaining a mastery of scales takes some time and some effort. If you aren’t willing to invest some time
and effort, then joining won’t help you. I’m sorry if that sounds really harsh, but I believe in being brutally
Guitar Scale Mastery is suitable for you if you have the following qualities…
You have the intelligence to realize that mastering scales will take time
and effort. I know some people will be looking for some “magical trick”, but there ain’t one. 🙂
You know how to confidently read tablature (TAB).
You enjoy practicing the guitar, and are willing to work hard to
You have some basic knowledge of scales and
already know a few scale fingerings. You definitely don’t need to be a scale guru, but some basic
knowledge is needed.
You would like to improve your ability to improvise with scales.
You are willing to keep an open mind and try new things. Some of the
practice strategies I teach are a bit unusual, so you must be willing to give them a shot. Why?
Because they work. (More on that later).
You are an intermediate level guitarist who would love to become an
advanced/pro level guitarist.
If you have these seven qualities then you are exactly the sort I person that I want to help. You are
the sort of person that Guitar Scale Mastery was created for. In fact, if you have those qualities I feel your
scale ability will improve a LOT by joining…
Case Study: Craig Screws Up. Member Improves A Lot…
A while back I got a support email from Gary Gladwin who is a member of Guitar Scale Mastery. I had
made a stupid mistake in uploading one of the backing tracks, and he was wanting me to check it out. He got my name
wrong in the email, but I won’t hold that against him. 🙂

very few understand that learning to visualize scale degrees is just as important…perhaps even MORE
This intense 76-page digital guide reveals the specific exercises and learning strategies that will help you
gain a true mastery of the art of scale degree visualization.
Here are a few of the things that you’ll learn from it…
exactly what scale degrees are. Many guitarists don’t understand this, which causes them to struggle
with learning guitar scales.
