High Octave G Scale

With Alternate Picking

This is the second part to the G major scale and is essentially just and extension of the lower octave scale that you learned in lesson 8.1.

For this scale, start on the 5th fret, 3rd string with your ring finger. This is where we left off in the previous scale. Click on the video below to hear more details on playing this scale and to hear a demonstration using alternate picking.
