Hi David, Sound interesting!

In fact I have felt for a while that practicing scxles did not do much for me as most guitar music does not seem to incorporate scales per se — in fact your article fairly recently Scale Practice on Classical Guitar pretty much matched how I felt.

Simon December 11, at Thank you for posting a question! I have been using your daily majot book since I joined CGC and find it very helpful.
