There's usually the same frets recurring on successive strings.

For example, the Iwato, third mode of Japanese a. or the 'K' scale. I'll do it on 7 strings to prove my point.

You see?


NONE compete with the Nonatonic for shape complexity!
You need a set of four dexterous fingers and a very visual grip of the fretboard.

I once sat trying to work out all eight of its modes but I screwed up the fifth and scrapped the lot.
