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.

The Locrian Scale is another popular guitar scale used in Jazz Guitar. If you are interested in playing Lead Guitar or Soloing then learn these patterns and learn to play jazz guitar!
