Crabwise scales are a great way to learn numerous guitar scales in a single lesson. This is how you can play guitar scales ‘Crabwise.’ Lets look at the E major scale as an example. Start off on the E major scale and play it on the first 3 frets from the 6th string down to the first. When you reach the last note play back the F major scale back up the strings. When you reach the 6th string play the G major scales down the strings.

When most people learn scales they learn one position, then the next, then the next. Learning guitar scales this way can make your playing sound very ‘boxy.’ Instead of learning scales by potions try learning them in string pairs right up and down the neck. This will program into your mind that the scale is over the entire fretboard and will have a remarkable effect on your playing.
