Exploring some interesting and easy to play shapes of one of the favorites John Coltrane's scales: the INSEN SCALE.
Try to mix it with a Bb min pentatonic scale to add more color and variety to your solos 😉

The shapes are generated automatically with guitarLayers by setting up a custom notes-per-string number.

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.

Amazing!!🎸

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.

That's a sweet guitar!

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!
Have you ever noticed this G7(b5) arpeggio symmetry and its harmonic equivalents: Db7 (b5), A7(9,b13) and Eb(9,b13)?

guitarLayers, thanks to its inner knowledge base, helps you to explore automatically harmonic concepts and visualize them in any possible shape on the fretboard, both for learning and teaching.

customized tunings would really help this app. I frequently have to chose something else because I can‘t adjust the tuning.

That three-notes chord can be used as a seventh chord. Can you give some possible name to it?

Maybe Cmaj7b5

Fmaj7/9/b11

Aminb7/9

D7(6) / F# ??

Bsus2?

Ab7#9 or Amin6/9

Cmaj5b The only seventh possible

Cmaj7B5

Cmaj7#11/Gb

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.

I will call it Dave.

Bsus2b/F#. o F#sus4,5b

Gbsus4(b5)

maybe one starts searching on the fretboard when the memory fades away ... and some actually starts that way from the very beginning
