MINOR SCALE

Minor scales also use WHOLE and HALF step intervals to make a scale.

The HALF steps (or semitones) are after the 2nd note and 5th notes (rather than the 3rd and 7th).

MINOR SCALE

Like the MAJOR SCALE, there are multiple shapes (and interval patterns) of MINOR SCALES.
This pattern starts on the A string. Practice this one back and forth!

E MAJOR

Step 1: Determine the root note (usually on the low E, A, or D string)
