This is the third part of our sharp and flat major guitar scales series. And the third part is about the F#/Gb major guitar scale.

So how do you begin playing this scale? You start by playing the F# note on the 2nd fret of the E6 string and progress until you reach the 4th fret of the D4 string. But you don’t have to stop here. You can keep playing until you reach the third F# sound, which is located on the 2nd fret of the E1 string.

Here is the figure:

F# Gb Major 1

And the tab:

F# Gb Major 1 tab

Here’s another pattern. This time, you will start on the 9th fret of the A5 string, and progress your way up to the last note on the 14th fret of the E1 string.

Here’s the pattern:

F# Gb Major 2

And here’s the tab:

F# Gb Major 2 tab

You will see that this pattern encourages you to reach a wider range of frets. In that way, it’s a very good exercise for your left hand fingers, and it also helps you to get familiar with the notes on the fretboard.
