Rock The Hindustan Scale (Linear)

The Hindustan Scale (Linear)

The Hindustan scale is a 6-note scale.
It’s actually a Mixolydian scale minus the 6th note.
You can learn more about Mixolydian here The Modes

Leaving a note out of a 7-note scale creates a new scale that has a more open feel.

The formula is: 1 2 3 4 5 b7

Here’s the Hindustan scale in the key of C.


You can solo with that scale over a C7 groove (or C Mixolydian chord progressions).

Check the sound of the scale-out in the following video

These free lessons are cool, but you will never experience the progress, joy, and results that my students experience in lessons when you’re learning by yourself from blogs and videos.

That is why people take lessons: way better results and progress, much more complete information, exposed to way more creative ideas than you can get from a blog or YouTube video.
There is only so much that self-study can accomplish.

If you want to see amazing results and progress in your guitar playing, buy your first lesson here and get started ASAP.
