AGEDC octaves (EADGBE : 6-string guitar standard tuning)
A minor scale (3 notes per string) : General

In BLOGoZON No.281 the box shapes for the A minor scale were presented using the AGEDC octaves methodology.

In this BLOGoZON we look at the A minor scale, again, but with 3nps shapes and join them all together to form one long AGEDC octaves chain.

The diagram that follows shows all seven of the AGEDC octaves shapes for use with
the three notes per string patterns for a 6-string guitar tuned to EADGBE :-

The conjoined AGEDC octaves sequence is shown for A natural in the diagram that follows:-

The diagrams that follow show all of the A minor scale notes plotted over the 6-string guitar's fretboard in the AGEDC octaves and GuitarPro6 styles:-

As always a more long term solution to fretboard navigation is to see scales as INTERVAL shapes rather than note names - as these are universal to all scales, arpeggios and chords rather than specific to one particular root note - with this in mind the intervals for the A minor scale are detailed below in the AGEDC octaves manner:-

The tables and tabbed panels below detail all five box shapes for the A minor scale in the AGEDC octaves style.

Once the individual box shapes have been assimilated all seven shapes should be linked together and played in one continuous exercise (with the first shape - 5Am3Gm1 - being repeated at the 12th fret).

The video shown to the right demonstrates the AGEDC octaves chain-linked sequence for the A minor scale 3nps box shapes.
