Handling Moveable Scale Patterns in Root Positions in Ukulele Exercises

Part of the Ukulele Exercises For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)

All of the scale diagrams which follow show moveable chord positions. They’re called this because they can be moved up and down the fretboard to create different kinds of scales in different kinds of keys. The black dots indicate where the root notes of the scale are located in the pattern. All of the scale diagrams are in root position; this means that the first and the last note of the pattern is the root note of the scale. Line up the black dots with different notes across the fretboard to create scales in different keys. The numbers in the captions show the scale formulas for each scale.
