I wasn't being critical of Segovia or his scales.Breeder wrote:wow another guy who actually doesn't read the thread...if you would care to find out what Segovia scales are you would not answer so balantlyburnt out wrote:Wow imagine that. Another idiotic thread.
My point is that all scale patterns should be explored and mixed and matched so that you learn that you can go anywhere. There's lots of different routes you can take to get to the same place. It's about learning your options, not picking a particular preference in terms of patterns of x amount of notes per string right out of the gate. I was getting the impression from this thread the 2 notes per string wasn't as good as three and that 4 was better than 3 and so what's next? 5 is better than 4,blah blah blah. It was starting to remind me of a more is more penis measuring contest again which goes on too much around here lately. It's not about being the most technical or the bestest fastest strongest yoda yoda yoda. It's about knowing your options and knowing them well so that you can express yourself. It's just like words. You want to be able to express yourself and that doesn't just mean learning only all of the biggest words only.
