On top of learning scales in ‘positions’ i.e. position 1, position 2 etc. it is so important to be able to play any scale you learn on 1 string.
This is because when you learn a scale on 1 string you can see the intervals more clearly. An interval is the distance between any 2 notes. In higher level guitar, scales chords and melodies are all learned and mastered in terms of the intervals they use - we’ll be doing more on intervals in the future.
