In this video, I show you a way that is not only fun to play scales on guitar but also results in a very unique sound.

From these scales you can create incredible sounding music.

What you are about to learn can be used in a number of styles of music including blues, rock, jazz, pop, and country.

The one simple ingredient you are going to add to your scales for this sound is the easiest thing to play on a guitar.

What is that?

Open strings :)

What you are about to see is an excerpt from a masterclass I presented to my online students where I demonstrate exactly how to add open strings to your scales for a unique and magical sound.

It will set up a foundation for you to create beautiful music from.
