C Major Scale Workout - Scale Pattern #1

  • Scale Pattern #1
  • Key   C
  • Tempo   80 bpm
  • Tuning   GDAE
This pattern is what we like to call the '1231 2342' pattern, which refers to the scale degrees. Listen to this scale a few times to get it in your head, then play along with the tab to internalize it on your instrument. This particular tab starts you on the lowest note of the mandolin so you can achieve the full range of the C scale in first position.
