Yes, it’s a gorgeous day today, it’s time for the 4th position of the Major Scale. This post is part of the G major scale series (position 1, position 2, position 3, position 4 up to this point) so if you haven’t checked out the previous lesson please do so. You can also dive into the lesson first and come back to the other lesson later. No problem.
4th Position G Major Scale
We are going to learn the Major scale “4th position”, also referred to as the A-shape which I will tell you all about in the video lesson. I will give explain everything in the utmost details with all the practice tips and tools to really make you own these scales inside out. You’re gonna have a blast!
See below for the scale diagram, TABs and video guitar lesson 🎶
I appreciate any feedback you have in the comments below. 💚

I found the charts for G in the 3rd position very helpful. I could clearly see the CAGED shapes and this was a huge step forward for me.
Would it be possible for you to do a ‘simple’ lesson on how to move through the various positions from shape 1 to shape 4 or beyond.
Klaus Crow says
I will certainly do a lesson on that sometime soon.
In the video lesson of Position 5 of the major scale I already
have a great exercise that incorporates all the 5 positions.
Let me know if that is what you mean or do you have other examples of what you would like me to teach you.
