Fourths Tuning Scales and Arpeggios
Scales and Arpeggios
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Following on from, ‘Fourths Tuning – Chords and Inversions’, I wanted to share a number of ways to see scales and arpeggios in fourths tuning that really take advantage of having a fretboard with a symmetrical layout.
This book is divided into three sections. In the first, we look at how to transfer your knowledge of scales and arpeggios from standard tuning to fourths tuning, so as not to have to start again from scratch.
In the second section, we go deeper into scales and arpeggios using a system borne out of the symmetrical nature of fourths tuning, and which will have you playing scales and arpeggios easily and freely all over the fourths fretboard in a matter of hours.
In the final section, we abandon shapes and patterns all together and really begin to take advantage of the consistent interval layout in fourths tuning to form chords, arpeggios and scales on the fly using interval formulas.
If you're transitioning from standard to fourths tuning, this book will guide you along the way and help you make the most of the exciting world of all fourths tuning on guitar.
