Segovia Scales - Pattern Approach.pdf page numbering is broken. It has two pages #5.
Ta, it's been something I've been meaning to do for a while. The relationship of particular patterns was shown to me last century ( ), but I'd never seen it mentioned in any publication. Often, the obvious thing is not obvious until someone points it out & then you say something like, "Oh yeah, of course.".Luzhin wrote:Thanks for your work on this. I've intuitively recognized these patterns, but having it codified and in black and white is a help. Nicely done.
Hi Richard: I too have one but with no other clue. Can you give me the ones you have? I am a beginner and have a lot on my plate already, so need this help. thanks. strivediRichard Judge wrote:Thanks Kampret
I have "fretboard roadmaps" which uses a similar patterns technique to introduce scales it's not really aimed at "Classical" players but I have found it very useful.
I would like to see the Segovia scale patterns on a fretboard graphice similar to those used in the book.

Thank you so much for putting this together. I am finding it very helpful. I do have a few suggestions and comments that might be helpful for most of us newbies. It would be very helpful to have the number of frets that you need to slide up or down annotated on the sheet. I have the following written on my copy:
C Major, C# minor - 3 up, 3 down
G Major - 3 up, 3 up, 4 up, 5 down, 5 down
A minor - 4 up, 1 up, 4 up, 4 down, 3 down, 2 down
B minor - 3 up, 4 up, 3 up, 4 up, 4 down, 5 down, 5 down
E Major - 4 up, 3 up, 5 down, 2 down
E minor - 2 up, 4 up, 3 up, 4 down, 5 down
F Major - 4 up, 5 up, 5 down, 4 down
The E Major pattern appears to have an extra "//4 3 1" in the descending sequence.
The E minor pattern appears to have an extra "4" just before the slide at the top of the scale.
The A minor instructions appear to be missing the "To play, start at the 5th fret of the E string."
I think it would be helpful to add the following to the E Major and E minor instructions; "The second note of the scale is played at the 2nd fret of the E string."
