Thank you so much 🙂

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

Rad thanks

Thanks great info

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

Thanks A Ton

Amazing! Thank you for this

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

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

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.

Any chance of an iPhone app?

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)

Parametric Notes-Per-String number (NPS)

With guitarLayers it is possible to create shapes with a desired number of notes for each string.
This can help you to obtain symmetrical scale or arpeggio shapes along the entire fretboard and, above all, to make your right hand picking more fluent.
In the example below we have 4 NPS descending C Bebop Minor scale, try it yourself! (Scale diagram in comment below)

Diminished Open Triads

Open Triads, or Drop2 Triads, provide a great way for you to expand your chord vocabulary beyond the usual chord shapes. They can also be used as arpeggios to create interesting single-note lines. Diminished open triads formula showed by degrees is: 1 b5 b3, b3 1 b5, b5 b3 1.
On the guitar these voicings can be arranged on three different ways that correspond to different strings sets.
Here we have Diminished Open Triad voicing on three different string sets.

Drop 2&3 and Drop 2&4 voicings
and related inversions

Talking about seven chords, Drop 2&3 and Drop 2&4 voicings are less common then Drop2 and Drop3 ones but they can be very useful in some contexts.
Drop 2&3 are a closed structure (1357) where the third note from the top, as well as the second note are both lowered an octave, resulting in 3517.
Drop 2&4 are a closed structure (1357) where the fourth note from the top, as well as the second note are both lowered an octave, resulting in 1537.
Here the Cmaj7 Drop 2&3 and Drop 2&4 voicings and related inversions, use them as starting point to derive other chord types.
