In this third segment, we will be covering our remaining two positions of the C major scale. So the fourth one, we will look at has a root on the fourth string. So we have got a C right here on the tenth fret. You can start there with your second finger and this form will look like this. So for this form, we have the tenth fret and twelfth fret on the fourth string. The ninth fret, tenth fret and twelfth fret on the third string. The tenth fret, twelfth fret and thirteenth on the second string and then the tenth fret, twelfth fret and thirteenth on the first string.
And there are some additional node, we can hit as well, starting from the root, we can also go to the ninth fret of the fourth string, down to the twelfth fret and tenth fret of the fifth string and then the thirteenth, twelfth and tenth fret of the sixth string. So playing that scale in order will have -- so that's our fourth shape and then the fifth and final one that we will be looking at will be up on the fifteenth fret of the fifth string.
Now, we started down on the third fret of the fifth string. These were actually the same node, just an octave up, so it will actually be behind that first node that we started on just an octave up. So this position will look like this. So we are starting on the fifteenth fret of the fifth string, going to the twelfth, fourteenth and fifteenth fret of the fourth string.
The twelfth and fourteenth of the third string. Twelfth, thirteenth and fifteenth of the second string and then twelfth, thirteenth and fifteenth of the first string. And the lower notes that I have are the fourteenth and twelfth on the fifth string, down to the fifteenth, thirteenth and twelfth on the sixth string. So in order, we have --. So your goal eventually is to, in the key of C major be able to play all five of those positions, one after another very quickly.
So it should take less than several minutes and just become the beginning of your warm up and then you have got those scales down really well and you can derive other scales from them. You can try different picking and fingering patterns and different licks and it just keeps building on itself and you can really turn it into anything, you want.
Now, in our next segment we will look at a few applications using these scales, we have just looked at.
The interim starts on the low E string and it goes like this. So then it's the B, A and C I keep these string ringing on the G throughout the whole thing.
