Major scales on one string

I use the major scales to demonstrate varieties of expression, and the minor scales to demonstrate varieties of articulation.

You should apply any and all of the examples to all of the scales.

Play the scales slowly, with a singing, full tone and connected sounds.

Here is a quite standard musical expression:
C major scale

Learn the most common combinations of expression and dynamics first. Step out the scale.

Melodies usually get louder as they ascend, and usually get softer as they descend.
C major scale

Use dynamics.

Melodies usually get louder as they ascend, and then become softer as they descend.
