Re: Mandolin Scales
Of Course there is the DIY learning technique .
A) Learn how to spell the scale in the chosen key,
adding the sharp and flat as you veer away from C major .
Flats by 4ths in this order >> B E A D G C F << sharps by 5ths in the reverse order
then, .. B) find the place on the fingerboard that that note is located .
made a little picture of the black keys and where they are not, in my mind ..
since the e>f and b>c [keyboard] pattern of no black note between them
is why the #/b is added when beginning scale from a different note,
to keep the pattern (spelling) consistent .
