Here at guitarLayers we have an insane passion for exploring new things and custom modern structures! The following is a Cmaj9 arpeggio, with a custom notes order, obtained by stacking two fifths, a major second and again a fifth with the guitarLayers Structure engine. The shapes are, then, automatically-generated by the guitarLayers Vertical Shape engine.
A lesson about pentatonic scales by Steve Stine, great guitarist, guitar instructor and motivator, chief of GuitarZoom.com and contributor at Guitar World magazine.
Steve Stine Guitar In this lesson, we will be looking at a simple but effective way to play the pentatonic scale over any chord (using what I refer to as "chord chasing") to create more colorful and interesting solos, and then we will look an another way to approach this as well.
Hi Steve.. First, great video ! I've got a question... A little background: In the last few minutes of your video you talk to staying in one position ('A' Minor Pentatonic) while at the same time utilizing the different 5 positions of the Pentatonic scale to accommodate the cord changes you recorded (C-Maj, A-Min, F-Maj and G-Maj). I have all 5 positions of the scale down and would like to use the different positions in one place as you demonstrated. In Pentatonic positions 3 and 4 you have both the F and G notes. For 'F' you used position 4... why not position 3? How do you decided the position to use when the notes are found in both?

An interesting lesson about the "Voodoo Blues Scale", from the Argentine teacher based in Berlin Germán Schultis, exploiting one of the most interesting guitarLayers features: creating and managing Custom Scales, Chords and Arpeggios.
www.guitarlayers.comBuenos días hoy les traigo la escala Voodoo Blues, es una buena alternativa a la hora de alternar con la escala Pentatónica menor, la escala de Blues y la escala Pentatónica m6, ya que reúne elementos de las tres. Esta escala esta formada por los siguientes intervalos: 1 - b3 - 4 - b5 - 5 - 6, es importante memorizar los dibujos pero comprendiendo como les decía antes cual es la diferencia con otras escalas Pentatónicas ya vistas en la página. Ahora si… A ESTUDIAR!

Hi Guys! New "Frequently Used Keyboard Shortcuts" guide now available on our support page. This is a few pages guide that summarizes some core guitarLayers functions using the Mac modifiers keys. Download it together with the "Getting Started Guide" and in a short time you will definitely master the software!
No clue as to original key of chord... however.. three possibilities (the names may differ - but the intervals are enharmonically correct) CMaj7/F#Bass or CMaj7#11 no3rd, B5(b9) or B(b9)/F#Bass, F#sus4(b5) or F#add11(b5) ..... (not diminished as there is no minor 3rd in chord.)
I don't know the names of chords, I learned the positions long ago and now I just play the fucking thing.
