The Geometric Scales
Geometric Scales are ones that are
played on the guitar with particular geometric patterns. When looked at that way,
it makes them easier to
remember. Some of these are not just scales, but intervallic
movements that make up a fragment of a scale type. In other
words, geometric fingerings can be complete scales or just part or fragments of scales,
that are fingered in a way that creates
identifiable patterns. I will show you what I mean in

The Augmented Scale
The Diminished Scale
The Half-Whole Scale - Half step, Whole step,
The Chromatic Scale Contains all notes. It is the
The Misc.or scale patterns or shapes on the guitar.
The other Scales are scales that
are very usable but have most of the tones covered in
previously learned scales. However they are worth the effort
to learn because of their applications and variations.
Remember scales are just melodies and they are not your
melodies. Learn them, forget them, and have a life. (of
course if you are going to teach anyone this stuff you
should remember the structure of the scales well enough to
show them correctly). If your a artist, who cares about
scales, just play from the heart and make me proud.
Remember, scales like the Red dots you use when learning how
to dance. Go make her giggle, forget the Dots.
