One of the problems that I found most common among us guitar players is that we get stuck in thinking ‘scales’ on our fretboard.
Of course, scales are not evil per se. Scales are a great way to understand your guitar fretboard (not the only one though).
The problem does not lie in the scales – the problem lies in our over-reliance on scales. But this leaves us with a conundrum:
Should we avoid learning our scales on guitar? Or is there any way to learn our scales without getting imprisoned by them?
My take is that we can and should learn our scales, and at the same time we should avoid being imprisoned by them by doing some scale-breaking exercises. These exercises put us directly in contact with the sound of music, completely bypassing the scale-brain.
In this video I present you a few of these scale-breaking exercises, and if you try them I’m sure your musicianship will benefit from them.
