When you learn the fiddle you are soon surrounded by scales, more scales than on a thousand pound tuna. And it gets intimidating! The good news is that there are really only two scales you need to know, if you want to start jamming and improvising hot solos...the Pentatonic Scale, and the "Folk" Scale. The Pentatonic Scale is used on all sorts of jam music, including country, folk and rock. The "Folk Scale", as we call it here at JamAlong, is a spiced up Pentatonic Scale, where we add the flat 3rd and flat 7th to give it a more bluesy flavor. And this scale is suuuuper useful, you can use it over anything, and it has that classic bluegrass sound.

This lesson will teach you both of these must-have scales, and in all the popular jam keys of G, A, C, D, E and F. And then at the end of the video, we give you awesome Backing Tracks for all the keys, so you can practice along with the band just like in a real jam! If there's one scale lesson you ever learn, it should be this one, because you will be jamming away like a star in no time...get started on scales, the right way!
