Dorian Scale Part II
Learning the Pattern
Today we will cover the rest of the Dorian scale which we started on Day 54. We will add the higher notes and play the scale all the way through from bottom to top. The physical aspect of this scale in its entirety should not be overly challenging to you at this point. Though as I have stated, I would highly recommend putting some energy into remembering what sound and pattern you are using. Here is the full scale.
By now you know which fingers go where based on fret span. If you can play through the scale enough to memorize it, then that is ideally what you would want to do. If you are not able to memorize it, then that is fine, just be sure to continue to practicing the scale in days to come. You should also be doing this with scales you have learned in the past.
