Putting it all together

Think of these scale forms as different ways to play the same notes. No matter which of the these G major patterns you are playing, there is still only these seven different notes (G A B C D E and F#). The scale forms are like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. The top notes of one form are the bottom notes of the next. Once you have gone through all 5 forms, you will just start over again.

When you play these scale forms in different keys, you will need to move the fret where the root is ( the note circled in red ) to the desired root note. Of course in order to do this you will need to know the names of the notes on the neck of the guitar.
