What is the most efficient way to learn guitar scales and chords?

I’m looking to learn to play different chords/scales in different positions, such as what different places can you play a chord where you can play various scales in different positions based off those scales. By efficient, I don’t want some cheap way of getting around it, I want to truly be able to know where the scales and chords can be played and I would like to learn it within a few months.

    ok dude bear with me here…. pick a scale such as “A natural minor” (ABCDEFG) nice and easy. Then, learn it all the way up every string of your guitar one at a time. (eg; on your E string the frets would be 0,1,3,5,7,8,10,12 and so on) then take the regular box position starting at the 5th fret ( i hope you know what i’m talking about) instead of playing three notes on every string before changing, try playing four notes. this will start your hand moving in a diagonal direction and if you learn the scale up every string you’ll always know where you are. I know it might sound confusing to read and i’m sorry if i haven’t explained it well enough but you can apply this to any scale and it worked great for me. Tip; remember where your root notes are, it helps you keep your head in unknown territory

    There is a free guitar program call Tux Guitar (it works for bass, banjo, etc too) that is nothing short of awesome. There will be a bit of a learning curve with the software but it is very worth it for the knowledge you will gain. In addition to filling you in on every chord and scale, you can download hundreds of songs and learn them using this software. It will also produce printed tablature in PDF format. It has an beautiful chord lookup and identifying section. This is an amazing program for free — it competes with $60 guitar programs and it is absolutely free, in fact the source code is available for it!

    Check it out:

    Good luck with your music!

    The author talked about quite a few interesting points on this page. I came across it by using Bing and I have to confess that I already subscribed to the blog site, it is very decent 🙂
