2 Octave Major Scale

In this session I will introduce to you a version of the major scale that spans 2 octaves and all six strings. The PDF for this session will be great to practice building speed.

Play it at your own speed. If you can’t play it up to speed as in the video, try practicing at a slower tempo.
