Who is it for?

48 scale-route sessions is a foundation for every beginner and they will take a good time months of regular practice to play all scales. This session and book will take you easily from intermediate to advanced level. Advanced Guitarist must practice all 48 routes practice so that they look professional and can have a good command in leads and comfort in rendering lead pieces/tunes easily.

Mastery to Guitar Scales Book (From the Author)

My reason to bring this book is to offer a great practice routine, exercise to Guitar Learners. It allows you to work on 48 independent open string scale sequences in both ascending and descending, where you encounter a different route, fingering and selection of open string notes while you ascend chromatically.

“It’s all about approach to your guitar, this type of scales workout is a professional approach to master scales and it’s the fact that differentiates between academic guitar schools students (beginners to advance) vs. professional guitarist. Most Guitar Universities limits the scope of guitar playing to mere position knowledge as singularly. And that’s why you don’t see students going much ahead despite they have got all academic knowledge. It’s also a reason for importance/need of ‘Guru Shishya’ Tradition (one-o-one and in-person learning with teacher) to develop professional approach to your playing. Professional approach is more hardcore, concentrated.”

Mastery to Guitar Scales (I) Video Demo (48 Rounds Scale Sequence)

Above is a raw video of brief demonstration of scales practice by Kapil. He has played all open scales and taken 1st 20 rounds of scales (starting from open 6th string to 2nd string C open scale position) with every new fingering and routing in new scale. In this video demo, you will find Mr Kapil Srivastava is taking a new fingering for next scale and using open notes rules.

Why Scales for every Guitarist?

Scales are like the ‘alphabet’ in the language of music, a group of notes which are sequenced in a pre-determined order. They are the parameter of understanding the melody technically. They are building blocks and foundation of your learning or teaching or playing a melody. They are the walking structure, road-map of your hand-movement.

“For me every music that I play, I see it standing on a scale, is coming from scales, in the same way that everything in your spoken and written language comes from the alphabet – without the alphabet, we wouldn’t be able to form words, or sentences, or converse.”Kapil Srivastava

It’s via individual notes, we form chords, or chord progressions, or compositions. So if you can gain a firm understanding of your scales, then you will practically get the right foundation to grow your music to a good level.

Do you remember learning ABCD is the first thing of your school? Similarly learning scales is an importance aspect for every guitarist. The end part i.e. the song/melody/music takes birth from its alphabets only.

NOTE – This is a Master Session which offers 48 independent open strings scale sequence in ascending and descending order. If you practice then it takes months or even an year to be able to play this master exercise. This is a 48 route practice and as clearly demonstrated in the video. This book is neither a reference book nor guide but a master session. It is focused only on mentioned specific technique and exercises. It’s a master session, a course, technique session (comprises of exercises with audios) for you to practice.

If you are a beginner guitarist and looking for holistic information on guitar, you need to go for ‘RUDIMENTS OF GUITAR‘ book and complete that first. We recommend you rudiment book before having this master session.
