A Basic Scale
Scales are generally what the parts lead guitars play are made of. They are also excellent for warming up and for learning note names with.
Before we start with the theory, you need to warm up
Below is a scale. This is the C Blues Scale, for now you don't need to learn anything, apart from how to play it, the note names will come later.
Use each finger for each fret required. i.e. place your first finger behind the third fret, second finger behind the fourth fret, third finger behind the fifth fret and the pinkie on the sixth fret.
If you are struggling with this, make sure your thumb is placed in the middle on the back of the fret board, allowing your fingers to spread out as much as possible
