Playing the guitar is one of the most famous skill when it comes to music. Many people whether young or adults still desires learning to play the guitar. There is no age limit when it comes to music. It only takes great inspiration, time, effort and practice learn this stringed instrument.

The Chromatic Scale is a series of ascending notes and uses all 12 different notes in Western Music. It is also in a semitone or half-step apart. In western music, semitone is the smallest interval between any 2 notes.

Learning this scale will benefit you the following:

1. Learn how to construct major, minor, pentatonic, and blues scales

2. Easily understand the chord construction

3. Hit upon all of the notes on a stringed instrument

4. Have the ability to arrange music

To have an excellent foundation in understanding fretboard and notes, you should develop your fingers’ speed and accuracy. The chromatic scale will be a great practice for you to build that excellent foundation.

Let’s take it one step at a time. Below is an illustration how you can learn the chromatic scale in the key of E. (0 is an open string)

6th String e-

5th String B-

4th String G-

3rd String D-0-1-2

2nd String A-0-1-2-3-4-

1st String E-0-1-2-3-4-

The very same scale can be played like this:

1st String E-0-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12

You are playing these notes as you ascend through this scale:

1st String: E, F, F#, G, G#,

2nd String: A. A#, B, C, C#,

3rd String: D, D#, E

Remember that the first note you play is the root note and the key of the scale. The one above is in the key of E. As you can notice that it started with the note E and then ended with the same note in a different octave. If you continue playing the scale to the next E that would be playing 2 octaves. Make sure that you are playing each note very clearly and then you can gradually speed up.

Many scales, chords and concepts were derived from this scale and learning this will help you understand and learn the music theory. Let me explain the notes given above:

A sharp (#) means to raise a note or tone 1/2 step. An A# is an A raised 1/2 step. In fact, because of this definition, we could call a B an A## — an A raised a 1/2 step, then raised 1/2 step again. A flat (b) means to lower a note or tone 1/2 step. A Bb is a B lowered 1/2 step. Because of this definition, we could call a G an Abb.

Take your time in learning and progressing from one scale to the next. Allow your body and mind to absorb the rhythm and movements or gracefulness that are required when learning to play a guitar. Music is the language of the heart so learn to play with an invested heart.
