  2. Hey Daric, being a guitarist, there’s different ways to pluck on the guitar than the bass. my right hand fingers are already sore and i notice your right hand fingers aren’t flat when they pluck they sort of curl after plucking? I might have missed it in one of the videos but, what’s the right way to pluck?

    • It depends on what genre you’re referring to. Of course major and minor scale are the most used. But the there’s also Dorian, mixolydian, blues & bebop scales that are frequently used in most music. Gospel is so vast and includes so many different styles it’s tough to say the one or 2 scales

    • Hey Ann! No problem at all. That’s actually a very common problem that can easily be fixed. Makes sure your thumb on your picking hand is resting on the E string that way it won’t ring. And that’s just one way to do it

  3. Hey Daric! Is okay for me to jump from C to D and from F to G? Its hard for me to stretch my fingers and keep them on the two notes at the same time. Is there any exercise to be able to make the left hand more flexible?

  4. Great video! I think this is a video I would have to watch a couple of times to grasp what I need to learn from this particular lesson. Reading scales, notes, fingering, numbers, etc…seem to be the largest challenge for me. Over time it will come but for now……………challenging! Thanks for the video lesson. It’s a good one!

  6. Hi Daric! I am currently working on the C Major Scale and I am trying to get my fingering correct. I figured out most of what finger to use on the fret to create the note, I just need help with these: What finger digit to use for : 7 fret/ A string/ E note, 7 fret/ D string/ A note, 8 fret/ E String/ C note and 8 fret/ A string/ F note. Thank you very much!
