When learning the scales you practice trying to use 'perfect form" - nicely arched fingers no other strings being touched.

When using the scales in the wild you may at times be required to diverge from that perfect form for specific reasons.

But "perfect form" as the baseline will tend to make those divergences relatively easy mods to make. 

That is as opposed to coming from a baseline of "sloppy form" and having to execute "perfect form" for something - a much more difficult task.

I have to admit, I'm struggling with this scale as well but didn't seem to have any issues with minor pentatonic scale.  Right off I was doing fine with the G Major scale but I've seen to have regressed some.  My fingers seem uncooperative.  For others interested - practicing along with the Justin video helps and keeps me focused on the "right-way", but its tedious. Please someone tell me Justin flubs up every now and then.  In the video he's always perfect!  :P

He's been doing it for most of his life. Once you've done it 10,000 times you won't screw up either. ;)

What do you mean when you say that Pattern 1 uses the "E Shape", and Pattern 2 uses the "D shape" etc. I don't understand what the chord "shapes" have to do with the scale patterns. Can someone please explain ? Thanks for any clarification you can provide.

It comes from the 5 chord shapes in the CAGED system. Justin has lessons on it and how these chords make
Up the scales all over the neck.
If you make and E shaped barre chord anywhere on the neck the root note will be right under your index finger
that is also the root note for the major scale patern 1. That barre chord will also contain the Root the 3rd and the
5th of the major scale and fall with in the notes of the E shaped major scale.
One of the members here made a web site with all thesspatterns in the major, minor and modes I'll see it I can find
it and post it here.
