💬 Lesson Description for This Whole-Tone Scale Guitar Video

In this video I'll show you the whole-tone scale guitar shapes along the fretboard, why the whole-tone scale exists, and how to use it on the guitar.

The whole-tone scale is most commonly associated with the stereotypical soundbite of a harp during a dream sequence in film or TV.

In this lesson I’ll cover four main points:

  1. What the whole-tone scale is

  2. What the whole-tone scale is used for

  3. The whole-tone scale guitar shapes on the fretboard and how to practice them

  4. How we can use the whole-tone scale guitar shapes to improvise over dominant 7th chords and in the context of a longer chord progression

It can be a lot of fun to play with the whole-tone scale and explore its nebulous and unresolved sound.

I hope you enjoyed this lesson about the whole-tone scale guitar shapes and found it beneficial. Let me know what you thought in the comments.

Thanks! :)
