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.
