Learn to Play the G Major Scale in Violin
Hello and welcome back to Violin Tutor Pro. Today, we’re going to learn the first scale that most people begin to learn in the violin which is the G-major scale. We’re going to learn two octaves of that scale which means there’s just going to be two revolutions of all the notes in the scale. So, on a violin you can actually play up to three octaves which is a more advanced scale technique. But, today we’re just going to learn G-major scale and it’s all going to be at first position which means you’re not going to have to move your hands up here at all. This is going to be in first position, okay?
So first note of the G-major scale is the lowest note on the violin which is open G and we’re going to play three notes on the G, A, B-natural which is bass apart, C which is right next to that B-natural and we’re going to go over the D string. Play that open, zero fingers and we’re going to put first finger down which is an E and we’re going to put F# which is G-major scale has one sharp so that too, the next note is going to be a space part in one just like it was in the G and then, three is going to be right next to that too, G. So, that was the first octave of the G-major scale.
Now, we’re going to keep going and play open A. We’re going to have to play a B, first finger and we’re going to play C-natural right next to one. Okay, and then A3 which is a D, and then open E and then F# which is just first finger on the same spot. We’re going to put it in and then, G-natural right next to one. So both on the A and the E string, your second finger is right next to your one and on the D string, your second finger is a space apart from one as well as in the G. So, space, space, half-step, half-step, okay? So let’s do that together slowly all the way from top to bottom.
Go back down. Excellent! So that was the G-major scale two octaves. It’s a great way to warm up before any practice session. Do that a few times and if you want to learn the three octaves of the G-major scale, feel free to visit my YouTube channel which is YouTube.com/violintutorpro and if you like to as well learn how to play a violin, feel free to also visit my website which is at ViolinTutorPro.com.
