scales - G major at 2nd fret

Here we have pictured the G major scale as it would be fingered at the second fret. The first fret, numbered at right is the fret immediately behind the second fret which is the fret we are working with. This pattern played where shown is the g major scale. The root notes for this scale are on the 1st 4th and 6th strings as numbered at top. Below I have mapped the scale with the root notes in black.

This scale can be played anywhere on the neck of the guitar and it will be the scale of whatever notes the black notes fall upon. Considering that the e minor scale has the same notes as the g major scale this would also be the pattern of the e minor scale however the root notes would be in different places. The e minor diagram with the root notes blackened is as follows.

Thank you and I hope you found this interesting and informative. If you have any questions or comments feel free to drop me a line at

Minds In Chains - A Poem

Minds In Chains

I wish all the other people could see
All these things that seem so obvious to me
We are one alive and free
Generations have come across the sea
Minds in chains
People should not criticize what they do not know
Or believe all the exaggerations they see on tv
What is the motive when the stations lie?
It seems to be to create a divide
And cause many people to run and hide
It may be to create an atmosphere of fear
To keep us apart from people so dear
So we will keep buying and they will keep binding
Our minds in chains is what they are devising.
