Rob’s point in this particular lesson is to show how to play the major scale including a couple of different variations.

The team at Guitar Control has recently released the first part of a lead guitar lesson on You Tube that entails playing major scales; therefore it should be worthwhile for most guitarists regardless of their skill level or style. That’s because scales are effective exercises for improving abilities such as speed and coordination as well as being essential building blocks for improvising or soloing on the six-string.

The reliable instructor in this 10 minute clip is Rob Compagna who is actually a rather new member of the crew at Guitar Control. However, not only has he been playing for around 30 years, but he was also teaching for quite a while prior to joining the company. So, he certainly has a handle on the six-string and knows how to bring his knowledge and abilities together in order to create informative and helpful tutorials. Furthermore, since this is the first in a two part series, people who enjoy this one will probably wanna stay tuned for the next one as well.

Rob’s point in this particular lesson is to show how to play the major scale including a couple of different variations. For those that aren’t yet familiar with guitar scales, aside from being beneficial exercise, they are also a big piece of the musical puzzle and something that pretty much everyone should practice at some point. Plus, major scales tabs are provided which show the string and fret where each finger should go in order to play each note. Tabs are a notable feature as they can be an invaluable tool for guitarists, although especially for beginners.

Lately, considering the complimentary guitar lessons like this one that are available online, it seems that anyone with an internet connection can simply log on and start learning at anytime. Whether someone is searching for major scale licks or would like to find out almost anything else about the six-string, Guitar Control should be able to assist with their ever growing list of lessons on You Tube, which now total over 325!
