How Many Guitar Scale Patterns?
Have you tried to learn guitar scale patterns from a book? Maybe you are working through a guitar exam syllabus and you are required to learn many new scale fingerings at every grade, or you just realise the importance of scales and understand that you need to know them.
Scales are the most important musical element you need to learn, although traditional methods of learning scales are very time-consuming and tedious. Constant repetition to try and learn scales is not efficient. There are so many possible fingerings that need to be learnt and it can take many years of study to become proficient.
Learning to generate scale patterns and learning scales is easy!
How I Remember Trying To Learn Guitar Scales
Classical guitar dominated my first few years of guitar playing. I then ventured into other areas of music and began playing in bands. I soon realised that if I was to truly master this instrument, I would need to know scales.
I purchased many books and other teaching materials to try and help me improve my guitar playing skills. Any scale books would usually show a diagram and expect me to learn the scale pattern, and then give me some cool ideas of how to use the scale. Learning the ideas was easy. How was I supposed to learn all these scale patterns!?!
I soon became obsessed with trying to find ways of learning guitar scales that didn't rely on constant repetition and parrot-fashion learning. I started to see mathematical patterns that could be turned into formulas and I could generate patterns for myself. This was a very exciting time!
The Guitar Scales Book
As time went on and I refined the scale formula, I began using the concepts when teaching guitar. I soon found that the concepts worked extremely well and students would always say something similar to "I wish I had known all this before. It would have saved so much time trying to learn all this stuff!".
The concepts made their way into my first printed book - The Paul Hill Guitar Theory And Technique Book. The book has been updated a few times throughout the years and the current version is digital only, available on Apple iBooks.
"Easily generate all the patterns you will ever need for the major scale, its modes and all the arpeggios contained within. Open your guitar playing world to countless new creative possibilities"

Step Forward To Today
Following the launch of Mastering Chords And Chord Substitution, I am so excited to present my latest guitar scales course. Not only are the concepts contained within my book explained in an easy-to-follow video with diagrams approach, you can also play all the examples along with me at various tempos. The video speed can be easily adjusted to suit your current level of ability. Fancy a real challenge? Crank the tempo and work through the arpeggio sections for a great technique workout!
Not only will you cover any fingering you will ever need for the major scale and its modes, but understanding how to visualise and use all the arpeggios contained within the modes will give you so many creative possibilities. The examples will improve both your alternate picking and sweep picking skills.
What To Expect From The Course
By the end of this course, you will be able to easily generate patterns for the major scale and all its modes in any key, covering your entire fretboard. You will also be able to play all the arpeggios contained within any of the modes, in all the possible fingerings you will ever need.
I have been teaching guitar for around 30 years using the concepts presented in this course and the concepts work, so let’s get started…
Guitar Scales - Do I Really Need Them?
Guitarists sometimes say that they don't need to know scales as they play by ear. Good luck with that approach!
There are two sides to playing an instrument:
- The artistic side - creativity and producing meaningful music.
- The mathematical side - understanding how it all works.
To become an accomplished musician, attention must be given to both sides. Not understating how it all works will eventually have a very negative impact on your guitar playing.
