Natural minor scale,/dorian mode/c major scale/mixolydian mode/locrian mode

Can anyone make a video using this pattern and how to apply? Thank you and much appreciated 👍

... Anyway I preferably use this pattern as a Dorian mode

Choose your root first... 😝

A / F#m

C / Am and my favorite G / Em

Just play what you feel.

Natural minor scale

Its minor scale..

Interested, kindly do some demo on how u do it? Thanks

Voodoo Blues Scale

Teachers creating interesting lessons by mapping uncommon scales with guitarLayers 😉En esta lección te quiero hablar de un sonido blues tan común como interesante: la escala Voodoo Blues. La estructura interna es totalmente idéntica a una escala de blues menor (1 b3 4 b5 5 b7) a excepción de la b7, que se sustituye por la 6. (1 b3 4 b5 5 6) Es sorprendente como cambiar una sola nota en un grupo de sonidos puede tener un efecto tan notable!

Three-Note Voicings

It is not that uncommon, among jazz musicians, to use three-note chords that can work as more complex chords structures.
Three-notes chords often are more handy and essential and, if we have the ability to obtain quickly their inversions, we can obtain a lot of voicings that can work as seventh chords.
In the picture below we have the notes C D Ab that can work as: Amin (maj7), Fm6, E7 (b13), Bb7 (9).
Try yourself the sound ! 😉

All three-notes chords, their inversions on string sets and their equivalent seventh-chords, are automatically generated with guitarLayers guitarlayers.com

Thank you so much 🙂

Rad thanks

Personally, I prefer 3 notes per strings. I really don't find these 4 notes/2 notes patterns useful at all

This is very helpful. I am still having problems putting my arms and ears around the sound of this scale and how to really use it. Trying though!!

Excelente información

Personally, I use this knowledge for triad pair improvisation. B altered: play A dim B dim, or C minor D minor, or Fmaj G maj. Other combinations eg with Eb aug are also possible of course, but using 2 neighbouring triads of the same quality saves thinking while playing.

Thanks for sharing this one. Interesting stuff to study. 👍👍👍

Amazing! Thank you for this

Thanks great info

Any chance of an iPhone app?

Thanks!

Thanks A Ton

My mind has blown with it😁😅still learning...

Minor Seventh Chord Substitution

In many situations, where we have a bass player, we can avoid to play the root and substitute it with the ninth.
If you apply this process to all the inversions of a minor seventh chord you will come up with the inversions of a major seventh chord, as you can see on the diagrams.
So that, any major seventh chord and its inversions can work as substitution of a minor seventh chord. (e.g. Cm7 -> Ebmaj7)
