Melodic Patterns tef

Postby ldpayton » Sun Apr 12, 2015 3:34 pm

For all you guys who like playing scales, I'm posting two big tef files of melodic patterns (folded scales). Seems there are lots of examples of these scales in a closed/movable position, but not so much for open position scales. For my style of playing the open position scales are more relevant, so I tabbed out a number of them in 7 different keys.

Wow Larry, you've been busy! Those are nice. I bet you now know your fretboard in the first position without a moment's pause.
Thanks for posting them!

Yep, it took a while to tab out all those scales, but I did it over a period of months. I'd tab out a few patterns, work on playing them, then tab a few more.

It'll take me a long time to master all those scales. I usually pick one pattern and just play it for a few minutes as a warm up to a practice session.

In the first set they were all somewhat familiar except for B. I've never worked on B before, so that will be good for me. I've not done most of those patterns either, so that could keep me busy for a very long time.
Thanks again!

Wow! Thanks for sharing all of that hard work, Larry!

I'm currently in "banjo mode" but as soon as I feel like putting it down for a while, I'm definitely going to get working on these patterns. That was like finding a little gold mine. :)

Mark.
