Scales harmonized in fifths -- A-major

If you do not want to play the exercises now, you can jump to the next lesson: Perfect Fourths (or go back to the Perfect Fifth lesson).

We continue with the same kind of exercise with harmonies in fifth, now in A-major

A- major, horizontal, skip-middle fingering.

A-major, skip-middle fingering, cross over once to higher set of strings.

Starting from a lower set of strings, crossing over twice

One octave lower, we cannot skip the string for the first pair of notes.

This is one octave higher, starting where the previous left. Again we start by playing it horizontally. As you are going up to the 17th fret, it is hard to play on an acoustic guitar, at least if it doesn't have a cutaway. But if you play electric guitar, it should not be difficult to reach th 17th fret.

We go down one octave again, but now we use a closer fingering, playing on two adjacent strings. We go the same route, and start with horizontal playing.

The next one goes across, and use open strings when possible.

This can also start from the bottom set of strings.

Again we go up one octave, and play horizontally.

The last example starts on lower strings, and go across.
