8 String Guitar
Scales and Arpeggios
Due to the rise in popularity of 8-string guitar, as well as the added complexity of learning scales, chords and arpeggios on the instrument, we’ve come up with a novel system for learning scales and arpeggios on 8-string guitar using the minimum amount of scale patterns possible, so that you can get straight to the good stuff: making music.
I’d like to show the most efficient and least time-consuming way to learn scales and arpeggios on an 8 string guitar in standard tuning (F#, B, E, A, D, G, B, E), which will both up your game technically and allow you, through consistent practice, to quickly gain a working knowledge of the most useful scales and arpeggios in music.
In this book, we cover 21 scales and arpeggios includes the major scale and its modes, pentatonic scales, the most common seventh arpeggios and a selection of exotic scales to broaden your tonal palette.
