Scales harmonized in inverted fifths

We do as we did with fifths, but now with fourths.

F- major, horizontal, skip-middle fingering.
error-file:tidyout.log
F-major, skip-middle fingering, cross over once to higher set of strings.
error-file:tidyout.log
Starting from a lower set of strings, crossing over twice
error-file:tidyout.log
One octave lower, we cannot skip the string for the first pair of notes.
error-file:tidyout.log

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.
error-file:tidyout.log
This is the same, but starting on lower strings.
error-file:tidyout.log
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.
error-file:tidyout.log
The next one goes across, and use open strings when possible.
error-file:tidyout.log
This can also start from the bottom set of strings.
error-file:tidyout.log
Again we go up one octave, and play horizontal.
error-file:tidyout.log
The last example starts on lower strings, and go across.
