The Spacing Perspective is another useful perspective we shall deploy in our studies toward learning guitar. Unlike the fret perspective or recommended fingering perspective, the spacing perspective, like the interval and note perspective deals with general music theory. The spacing perspective has two basic types of spacing half steps, which is just one fret difference between tones (going up or down the fretboard—going across strings is Circle of 4ths/5ths) and whole steps, which is two fret difference between tones. Thus B to C is a half step while B to C#/Db for instance would be a whole step. The spacing perspective is just one of many tools in the box that we can deploy for our purposes in playing and analyzing the performance of guitar—or any other instrument with the same diatonic scale. The spacing perspective is used for our purposes in examining the modes.
