The words sing of the greater sun and lengthening days that nurture the burst of growth in spring. In an ABABA rondo form, a slowly shifting modal accompaniment alternates with a rising chordal burst of harmony. “In longer day, the spirit cannot hide. Oh searching sun, heal earth’s darker side.”

Sailing with the Moon
This book is designed to help you discover and recognize the patterns that make up many types of scales. Uncovering the secrets of scale construction can five you a better handle on spontaneous improvisation and creating melodies. By exploring scale patterns from several different angles, you will develop the ability to let the notes fall underneath your fingers, moving seamlessly from one position to the next.
We’ll start off with the major scale—how it’s constructed, how it visualize it on a single string and then the entire fretboard, and how to come up with usable patterns. The core of our exploration will be a concept called rows—a unique way of looking at scales across the neck that will help you in developing fingerings and in memorizing and transposing scales.
After the major scales, we’ll look at the other scale types—pentatonic, blues, natural minor, harmonic minor, melodic minor, whole tone, diminished, chromatic—and the modes.
Along the way, we’ll explore a number of practice techniques, including sequential fingerings, the circle of fifths, and improvisation using chord-scales and motifs. We’ll even go off the beaten path to touch on harp-style fingerings and alternate tunings.
