Discuss the Mandolin lesson: B Major Scale Study

The purpose of this study is to teach your fingers where they’re going to live when playing in the key of B. We’ll first learn 3 positions for a one octave scale, then introduce a great exercise, and finally apply it to playing licks in B!

What I like about this lesson is the ease (sorta) in which you can do the same patterns for different keys. It’s starting to help me recognize where notes are on the fretboard, too.
I still don’t really understand the theory on the last section of this lesson (2-lick slides) but right now it doesn’t matter; it sounds pretty good and I’m having fun. Now I just have to get speed with clarity. Great lesson!
