Hungarian major scale

Many guitar players never learn 'exotic' scales because they think they are not interested in their sound, or that they should learn the 'normal' scales first.

And yet 'exotic' scales are used commonly in music we all listen to. And they are not as hard as you think they are :)

Today we see a scale that can be used (or misused?) to sound like Blues... but can also sound exotic and middle-eastern. Welcome to the Hungarian Major scale, a scale that you will not regret learning whatever style you play.

(And yes, in this video you will learn how to actually make music with it!)

Note that despite the name, this scale is totally unrelated to the Hungarian Minor scale that we have already explored in this video:

Also, you should check this course about scales and modes on guitar just because, honestly, it's awesome.
