Exclamation Major and Minor Scales!

Reading these shouldn't be a problem. To play them use alternate picking (that means your pick follows the movement of "down, up, down, up". As with connecting them, this is how it is done:

Order of modes.

Ionian (major)
Dorian
Phrygian
lydian
Mixolydian
Aeolian (minor)
Locrian

Each scale starts on the 2nd note of the previous scale. The order of the scales is always the same. The only thing that changes is the position of them which changes along with the key.


So in this attachment, its in Am so we start with Aeolian on the A on the big E. Locrian is the next scale (see the pictures to connect). If say you where composing a solo for a riff in F major, you would place Ionian on F on the big E string.

Harmoic Minor Scales!

Four Harmonic Minor scales. These are very common in metal. Play them to hear why:

Note: These follow the same rules as the modes

Sorry to be a stupid cunt but would you happen to have the harmonic minor scales in tab form? The form in your attachments makes my eyes cross.

e-------------------------------------------9-11-15~
B------------------------------------9-10
G--------------------------8-9-10
D-----------------7-8-10
A---------5-6-8
E-3-5-6




heres a good common sweep; the dimished bastard! (3 strings)

e-------------9h12p9-------------------12h15p12-------------------15h18p15
B--------11-------------11----------14---------------14----------17---------------17
G----12---------------------12/15-------------------------15/18-----------------------18


etc

move it up/down 3 frets each time, coz its comprised of minor 3rds, all inversions are covered after 3 steps

enjoy!

oh yeah, use your index ring and 'up yours finger' for this

heres another 2 vital metal scales im surprised havnt been mentioned yet; the DIMINSHED beasts!

the 2 main types: Whole-Half dim and Half-Whole dim


ill show them in a simple tab scaley thing

HALF-WHOLE in E: E F G G# A# B C# D

B-------------------------------------------0--2-3
G---------------------------------0-1--3-
D----------------------0--2-3-
A-------------1-2--4-
E-0-1--3-4

notice how each set of notes are in 'clumps' of 2? its one half interval, then a whole


the WHOLE-HALF is similar, but like this

in E: E F# G A A# C C# D#

e-------------------------------------------------0--2-3
B---------------------------------------1-2--3
G-----------------------------0--2-3
D--------------------1-2--3
A---------0-1--3-4
E-0--2-3
