C major scale - First Scale for Acoustic Guitar

In Britain and America we use the letter names. In some cultures, especially European- the major scale is taught in school as Doe, Rae, Mi etc rather than C, D, E etc so I’ve written it both ways here below. You can do this with a pick (plectrum) or with your fingers, which is called Fingerstyle
