Recommended for any guitarist looking to
start jumping beyond the first three frets. by Karmicfreak - Version 1.3 - Dec 4, 2011
This paper contains excerpts from the book Scale Visualisation and Application.
Seven scales with Sharps, seven scales with Flats, and one scale with neither makes fifteen Major Scales, however it is important to note that three of them are enharmonic which is why there are only 12 notes in the musical alphabet (the chromatic scale).....
All round this app is really really helpful
if you want to learn the building blocks of
guitar chord and mode creation although
it can get you started straight away if you want. by mrbatch - Version 1.3 - Nov 19, 2011
