Bill Leavitt’s 5 Major Scale Fingerings

William Leavitt’s 5-Positions of the Major Scale:

Those scales are in William Leavitt’s “Modern Method for Guitar”
His approach is defined by what he calls “position playing” (position=one fret BELOW your 2nd finger). His position playing allows your hand to stay in one place while your fingers cover a six-fret area (using 1st and 4th finger stretches).

The first 5 are introduced in Volume II (I think):
Type 1 (uses one 1st finger stretch)
Type 1A (uses two 1st finger stretches)
Type 2 (no finger stretches)
Type 3 (no finger stretches)
Type 4 (uses on 4th finger stretch)

In volume three, he adds Types 1B, 1C, 1D (all using 1st finger stretches)
as well as 4A, 4B, 4C, 4D and 1A/4D

Making a total of 14 total fingerings. His thing was to be thorough. He admitted to using only a portion of these in his own playing, but felt that it was important to give his readers “keys to the kingdom”

Here are his 5 fingerings. enjoy.

PS: Bill was my teacher while I was at Berklee :-)
