Download: Bass Guitar scale and mode creator

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by i like tictacs, Dec 12, 2005.


  1. Here is a program that I wrote that will help with figuring out and constructing modes for the bass guitar. You can select any note of the 12 from a dropdown box to act as the root and then select a mode. The program will then display the selected mode starting from your selected root. So if I chose C Dorian the program would display:

    C, D, D#, F, G, A, A#, C

    If I chose F Lydian, we'd get

    F, G, A, B, C, D, E, F

    and so on and so forth.

    I get an error saying "application failed to initialize" or something. Does it require .net framework or Java or anything to run?

    Akami Four on the floor

    Appears to be operating properly and only took seconds to run.


    Thanks TicTac, and also to Mike Kelley; great program! :p
     
  8. I believe you need .NET framework. Sorry for not mentioning! This is just a beta and I will post a corrected version if I can later this week.

    Glad you all like it.
