Practical Applications of Harmonised Scales Part 3 - Tapping

Today we are going to look at some ideas we can use within the harmonized major scale to help us compose tapping ideas. We’ll be looking at the e and B strings. We are going to be basing these ideas around three shapes: Major: 1 3 5 Minor: 1 b3 5 Diminished: 1 b3 b5 So, to start off with, let’s out the notes in the following chords: C major: C E G C minor: C Eb G C diminished: C Eb Gb Next, for each of those three chords, we want to map out those notes in ascending order on the second string.
