    The website Musicopedia seems to be down, and I was wondering if anyone knows of any other similar resources. It allowed you to select an instrument, number of strings, to select arpeggios or scales, etc. and then map out what you wanted on the fretboard, a pretty incredible tool. musicopedia.

    Feel free to reach out/share if you know of anything along these lines, thanks!

    Good suggestion, and that's something I do, but I'll still keep an eye out for a digital resource that allows for quick mapping of various scales. It can come in handy, especially on the fly

  7. Well, I get that, but you can do it yourself on the fly. It might take a little bit longer, but you having to actually think about whatever intervals that make up whatever scale will only help you.

    Make a commonplace book, in your own handwriting (something scholars did in the 1700's) with all the info you come across concerning scales arps, pentatonics, etc. That way you have the info you need on the scales, if you want to chart them out.

    I have checked out that site you mentioned, but for me, the way the scales got mapped always seemed a little hinkey to me, meaning they always were mapped in a way that wasn't useful to me.

  8. Just FYI. here is an example from my commonplace book. When I was reinforcing my understanding of Melodic Minor Scales and application.
    Melodic Minor page 2.

  10. Lol, well thanks! It's actually pretty sloppy compared to what it used to be.
