Scales of the World
The notes of the Hawaiian scale spell out a minor seventh arpeggio.
This scale is used commonly in the beautiful and sublime lap steel guitar music of Hawaii.
Because of it’s simple minor construction, you can use this scale with most any type of minor chord.
You can use a slide on a regular electric to mimic the sound of the dreamy Hawaiian lap steel guitar.
Of course if you want the genuine thick, full sound, there is never a substitution for the proper instrument. Check out this choice instrument below left!
