g: frets 0-3-5-6-7-10-12
For other scales diy...


shows Gminor pentatonic then G blues scale. has finger charts and videos...

thx for the reply guys about the blues scale. this may be a dumb question but Moritz, are you saying to first  run down the g frets and then go to d frets and run those frets down and then to the other g and run them down? i dont think im understanding that rite. sorry but like i said its all new to me

Scale on low G string: frets 0-3-5-6-7-10-12 (0 means open string, no fingers used, bold means base note)

Scale on high g string: frets 0-3-5-6-7-10-12 (same frets, on octave higher)

Combined over all strings over two octaves: on low G string frets 0-3-5-6, on mid D string frets 0-3-5, on high g string 3-5-6-7-10-12

Once you are familiar with this scale on G you will be able to play it on any base note by intuition.

Bill hi, you got the blues scale played and rooted to your ears?
