D Sharp Major Scale Positions On The Guitar Fretboard

In this article we will look at the D Sharp Major Scale and how to play it in different positions on the guitar fretboard.

The D Sharp major scale contains 5 sharps and 2 double sharps. A double sharp is notated with an “x” symbol. The 7 notes are as follows:

D# – E# – Fx – G# – A# – B# – Cx

D sharp and E flat are actually the same. The E flat major scale only has 3 flats. Because of this, it is easier to work with than D sharp. I would recommend skipping this article and focusing on E flat if you are still getting used to major scales. However, if you think you are ready to tackle something a bit more challenging, continue reading.
