A# (Sharp) / Bb (Flat) Major Guitar Scale – How to Play it

We are finally on the last topic of our sharp and flat major guitar scales. And this is the A#/Bb major guitar scale.

To play the simple and basic pattern, you first start on the 1st fret of the A5 string, so you hear the root note there, which is the A# or Bb. Then you proceed until you end on the last note on the 3rd fret of the G3 string.

Here’s another cool pattern of the same scale. And this time, you begin on the 6th fret of the E6 string. Then progress your way up and play two sets of this scale until you reach the last note on the 6th fret of the E1 string. In this pattern you get to hear three A# sounds. Playing two sets of a scale at once is great for practicing and can improve your left hand skills very quickly.

Here’s the figure:
