In this post we will look at the G Flat Major Scale and all of its positions along the guitar fretboard.
The G flat major scale contains 6 flats. The 7 notes in the G flat major scale are:
Gb – Ab – Bb – Cb – Db – Eb – F
The key of Gb major is the furtherest away from C major on the cycle of 4ths, so it has the perception of being a hard key to learn.
Let’s look at playing the G flat major scale in the open position. There is only one note (B) that can be played on an open string, but it’s worth playing anyway:
The first one is in the 1st position (the lowest fret is fret 1)
The next one is in the 2nd position (the lowest fret is fret 2)
The first one is in the 6th position (the lowest fret is fret 6)
The first one is in the 7th position (the lowest fret is fret 7)
The first one is in the 10th position (the lowest fret is fret 10)
So there we have it. All the positions along the fretboard for the Gb major scale!
