Free Locrian Scale Lessons
The 7 note Locrian Scale is sometimes called the "half-diminished" scale. It's called this because the root note in the Locrian scale is diminished. But I won't get into any more boring details. The root note is the key that the Locrain Scale will be played in. For example in the G Locrian Scale all "G" notes are root notes. All the root notes are shown on the guitar neck diagram.
Locrian Scales can be broken up into patterns and shown on a guitar neck diagram. Once you know the patterns you can play the Locrian Scales in any key because the patterns are moveable.
