BOXES FOR THE KEY OF E
In the key of E we can easily mix the A shape
boxes and the E shape scale number 1. The
chords are a fair way apart (A shape at fret 7
and the E shape at the open fret) so it would
seem that the scales and boxes would be along
way apart as well. In fact they have a common
note and are easy to move between. The lowest
note of super low box for the A shape and the
second note of scale 1 for the E shape are the
common notes. You can use this common note to
glide into either the scale or the boxes as you
like. A lot of songs mix the boxes of the A shape
and the open notes of the E shape scale. When
playing in the A shape boxes you can leave your
hand in that position but just lift and hit the
open notes.
