Unless a guitarist has a decent understanding of music theory and understands exactly how the note intervals are arranged all around the guitar neck, calculating out guitar scales and modes is pretty impractical. That is why free guitar scales charts are such a valuable resource to newer guitarist without that type of musical knowledge. Having a selection of different scales and modes can vastly expand the diversity of a guitarist’s solos. Playing jazz guitar would basically be impossible without that type of knowledge.
You can find guitar lessons for beginners online will teach you the various guitar techniques, but for lead playing, you also need to know the scale or mode you are using in order to apply them. Each scale and mode has a slightly different feeling to it, which can give an entire song a slightly different tone. Once you become more familiar with a variety of scales, you can switch melodies from one scale or mode to another and hear just how different they can sound. While learn how to play guitar online lessons are usually more focused on mechanics, a knowledge of using scales becomes much more important as a guitarist gets ready to move to an intermediate level of guitar playing.
Even guitarists intending to eventually learn music theory still benefit from using free guitar scales charts early on to get a feel for the different scales and modes. Our website is a good resource for these charts, as well as the lessons that apply to them. You can also get some interesting uses from trying to use these scales with styles of music they aren’t commonly used in, like trying to use the Locrian mode with techniques from blues guitar lessons dvd. A lot of virtuosos are really defined by using a wider range of scales and modes with more expressive guitar techniques.
