The Spanish Guitar Scale

Spanish Guitar has a very distinct tone and flavor to it. It is immediately recognizable. There are many different scales for the spanish guitar and the most popular and easiest to play are those that revolve around the open E string of your guitar.

Here is an easy Spanish Scale for you to play and get familiar with. The tuning for the guitar is the standard tuning.

This is the note progression starting with the open 6th string E

E - F - G# - A - B - C - D - E - and of course you continue this note progression right down the fretboard. You can get two full octaves out of this first position of the guitar.

 

Spanish Scale on the guitar

Here is the Spanish Scale extended through the whole six strings of the guitar.

The white dots represent where to play the note. Notice that five of the strings are played open in the scale. Here are these notes in progression down the fretboard Spanish scale in one direction mp3

Now play them in both directions down then up the fretboard and strings Spanish Scale up and down the strings mp3

This is real easy to learn and you should just practice going up and down the strings until you get fluid with it. Then try to do some improvising with these notes. All you do is tinker around with the notes and see what you come up with. Here is a twenty second improvisation I did on this Spanish Scale Spanish Scale Improvisation mp3
