That's what I think it is. However, THIS would be the entire scale played correctly:

E--------------------------------------------0-1-3---
B------------------------------------0-1-3----------
G-----------------------------0-2-----------------
D--------------------0-2-3----------------------
A-----------0-2-3-----------------------------
E-0-1-3------------------------------------

tis the C major scale. its usually the first scale you learn because it has no sharps/flats.

How the fuck is that C major?

EDIT:

oh shit. its not a scale at all. i didnt see that A# on the g string.

take away that random A# and its a C major

It would be E major...E is the root note.

Wait, no it wouldn't.

Emaj is:

E, F#, G#, A, B, C#, D, E

It would be E major...E is the root note.

then explain to me why there is an A# written on the g string but none on the a string.

that automatically makes it not a scale. and even if we ignore that, it would not be E because the notes of the Cmaj scale are C, D, E, F, G, A, B....all of which are written there(except that damn A#)

i dont know where you get Emaj from because that scale goes E, F#, G, A, B, C#, D#. which is not written there.

EDIT: and just because its the lowest note you play, doesnt make it the root note. thats true for minor scales and maybe other, but not major

c major scale, it's the first scale everyone learns, and that A# on the g sting is probably just a typo.

Yes, the A note is a typo. I was just curious because I was just messing around improvising for solos and I used that scale, but I forgot what the scale was called.

Thnx guyz!!!!

what do you mean, not a scale? Of course it's still a scale, just a wierd one.

Depends where your root note is. If your root note is C then is C major scale, if your root note is A then its A minor blah blah blah.

I would've said it was an E Phrygian scale because you start on E, but its sort of more up to the bassist to decide what mode you're playing in. :smile1:

no because you cant have a scale where a note is present on one string but not on another. if an A# is in the scale then every single A# on the fretboard is in the scale. no exceptions.

That scale sounds like straight ass.

it's an E Phrygian, not a C major. the C major you guys are thinking about starts on the A string, and that scale starts on the E.

C major-
E-----------------------------------------
B---------------------------0-1------------
G--------------------0-2--------------------
D----------0-2-3---------------------------
A-----3-----------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------

E Phrygian-
E--------------------------------------------0-1-3---
B------------------------------------0-1-3----------
G-----------------------------0-2-----------------
D--------------------0-2-3----------------------
A-----------0-2-3-----------------------------
E-0-1-3------------------------------------
