One good way to learn the fingerboard is to give your fingers things to do that they’re not used to. And one easy way to do that is to create short melodic patterns and repeat them on successive steps of the major scale. To play these patterns and remain within the same scale, we move up either a minor or major second or a minor or major third, depending on which one is in the key. In this lesson we’ll do the same with a few longer patterns based on a couple of pentatonic licks. While these workouts are natural for flatpickers, they are primarily concerned with learning the fingerboard, so fingerstyle players shouldn’t shy away from them
