Climbing Run Using Thirds

In today's lesson we're using thirds to create a tasty run we can use all the way up the fretboard! This is perfect for transitioning between scale patterns, or moving from one place to another on the fretboard, and can be made as long or as short as you please. As with the previous lesson, take your time with this - don't try to play it too fast right at the beginning! Slow sounds good too.‚Äč

Jonathan, nice little run and I will definitely apply it. If we were doing a G major key of say G, C, D, where would that run start? I’m thinking at the G chord, and then minor, minor, major, major, up the neck. Am I right?

On the example you played using Aminor, Fmaj, Dminor, Eminor, What third(s) goes over each of the chords?

Thanks again,

Would this be considered a 1- 4- 5- 6 pattern? Could use A
minor pentatonic or C Major
Aeolian with it?

Wow this run adds to my other scales and connects them, love it nice to understand how the fret board works to solo. Very exciting!
