10 ways to play a 2 octave scale

There's probably no limit to the number ways you could play a scale, even for practice.

10 ways to play a 2 octave scale
Preview

    1. Up and down one note at a time

    2. Playing each note multiple times

    Eighth notes, triplets, groups of 5. This can be combined with any other technique.

    3. Up and down in groupings of numbers at a time

    Three at a time would look like

    CDE. DEF. EFG. etc.

    Four at a time would be:

    CDEF. DEFG. EFGA etc.

    4. In diatonic intervals

    Thirds would be

    CE. DF. EG, etc.

    fourths would be

    CF DG EB etc.

    5. In triads, 7th chords and other chord shapes: arpeggiated

    6. Intervals and chords played simultaneously.

    7. Go up and down first 2, then 3,4,5 etc.

    CD DC

    CDE. EDC

    CDEF. FEDC

    ETC.

    8. Go from the highest note to the lowest and work inward

    Another way to think of this is to do ascending and descending simultaneously, just alternating notes:

    C B D A E G F G E A D B C

    9. Practice scales around the circle of fifths in one position

    C G D A E B F C

    10. Practice around other intervals

    11. Play up one way and down another

    12. On guitar: play groups either across the neck horizontally or up and down from the nut to the bridge
