C Major and E Major Phrygian Octave Scales for the Flamenco Guitar
Ben H Stubbs
First off, sorry for looking so tired in this video... I had just gotten done teaching back to back lessons.🥱
I wanted to give you an idea of what you can do with octaves on the guitar. In this video I show you how you can play both the bass and treble notes of the C major scale scale using "pedal" (a bass-treble exchange with p, i, & m fingers)...as well as the E major Phrygian scale, which is basically just an extension of the C major scale making it's way down bass C to the low E.
...Hmm...did that make sense? 😕 If not, let me know!
I hope this video sheds some light on the subject of octaves, and how awesome they are...and...how you can use them in Malagueñas. Enjoy!
