Exclamation Major and Minor Scales!

Reading these shouldn't be a problem. To play them use alternate picking (that means your pick follows the movement of "down, up, down, up". As with connecting them, this is how it is done:

Order of modes.

Ionian (major)
Aeolian (minor)

Each scale starts on the 2nd note of the previous scale. The order of the scales is always the same. The only thing that changes is the position of them which changes along with the key.

So in this attachment, its in Am so we start with Aeolian on the A on the big E. Locrian is the next scale (see the pictures to connect). If say you where composing a solo for a riff in F major, you would place Ionian on F on the big E string.
