Major Scale Modes


This tutorial covers the basic fingerings for the major scale modes. All of the boxes shown here are movable - the actual scale being played depends on where on the neck you play the shape.

Two fingerings are shown for each mode. In the first column are shapes which are all based on the same 'major scale box', and these show how the notes of the parent major scale relate to the notes within each mode. The second column shows specific fingerings for each mode.


Take the time to get familiar with these shapes. In particular, the second set of fingerings are very valuable, so include them in your daily practice routine. Good luck.
