The content on this page requires both javascript and a recent version of the flash plugin to work correctly

If you're reading this text, it's because you either have javascript disabled, you don't have flash, or your flash plugin is too old.

You can follow this link to download and install the latest flash plugin, if you think that's the problem. Otherwise, you'll have to either enable javascript in your browser or face the fact that you can't view my crappy movies unless you do.

Oh yeah, I guess a third option would be that you have both javascript and flash, so you can see this text only because your connection or computer is slow and the full page hasn't loaded yet (at which point the magic of javascript will vanish this and put the movie in it's place). However, unless you have a really slow connection or are a really fast reader, that's probably not what's happening here.

At least I put this semi-funny text here to entertain you. That's more than some people do!

P.S. Actually one other reason you might be seeing this text is if you view the source of the page, but that's cheating!

This week we're working on scales. Or more appropriately, we're learning a scale pattern.

Which is to say, a certain combination of finger moves that you can use in any position on any string with 2 strings above it.

I'm not 100 sure that the exercise is a real scale, but the idea is the same. I'm thinking that TJ picked it because it’s a recognizable “tune”, so to speak.
