    so... anyone?
  3. Yes, I remember it. There was a 4 and 5 string version.

    The author is Ryan James:


    The website on floodcity is no more and I can't find a link to the PDF's you need to view it.

    There is a discussion on Sputnikmusic about it too, but these link to the dead URL as well.

    Can anyone help explain the first pdf? Which fret do those patterns start on? The first?
  12. they work on every position.
    for example if you want to use pattern 1 for an E major scale put your index on fret 4 and pinky on fret 7. if you want an D major scale use 2,3,4,5.

    That is some nice work he did on that stuff. I might have to make another poster to incorporate some of this stuff too. :)

    I have a system that is even simpler than this and takes up one diagram and shows you every mode. And with two small alterations, shows you every mode in every parent scale. Now that's a cheat sheet.
  18. the link doen't work for me:crying:
    can anyone re-post it here?

    okay hang on..


    There it is

    I can use this to get me any pattern and I don't have to learn little boxes I can just go up and down frets or strings and always know where I am.

    Works for me..

    By the way, you can get all four parent scales really easy - if you flatten Phi (i call it Phu) then you have melodic minor modes. If you flatten Ae (I call it Oo) then you have the harmonic major modes. If you flatten Phi and Ae, (I call them Phu and Oo) then you have the harmonic minor modes. I can either put these extras on one diagram, or make four separate charts. In any case with one chart I can show the patterns for 28 modes in 4 parent scales.
