a guitarist's occasional blog
Practicing scales isn't necessary for everyone. If your only ambition is campfire strumming, you can probably stick to learning the songs you want to sing. There is no shame in only strumming "cowboy" chords. We all have our priorities in life.
However, for students who wish to improvise, pick fiddle tunes, or play guitar solos up the neck, there is no substitute for learning scales. I've attached a free guitar lesson pdf. here with four C major scales for guitar that beginning students and guitar teachers might find useful.
Enjoy! Practice some scales, but make sure to play some music as well!
