Obtain automatically and quickly these TRIAD PAIRS inside a D Dorian and broke the linear sound of the scale for a more modern sound and phrasing!
Of course you can do the same with every scale you want and every couple of triads inside the scale.

New 2.2.0 Update now available on the Mac App Store!

GuitarLayers now includes, by default, a set of projects containing the shapes of the most used music scales.

Each project shows a single scale, in twelve keys, arranged on the fretboard by applying a given fretboard constraint: Common Shapes, Vertical Shapes, Three Note-per-String Shapes, Two Notes-per-String Shapes.

This is the first step in order to gradually provide, within guitarLayers, pre-compiled and ready-to-use contents that will also include Chords and Arpeggios.

Scales Projects List:
Minor Pentatonic Scale - Common and Extended Shapes; Major Pentatonic Scale - Common and Extended Shapes; Minor Blues Scale - Common Shapes; Major Blues Scale - Common Shapes; Major Scale - Common and Vertical Shapes; Major Scale - Three and Two Notes-per-String Shapes; Natural Minor Scale - Common and Vertical Shapes; Natural Minor Scale - Three and Two Notes-per-String Shapes; Melodic Minor Scale - Common and Vertical Shapes; Melodic Minor Scale - Three and Two Notes-per-String Shapes; Harmonic Minor Scale - Common and Vertical Shapes; Harmonic Minor Scale - Three and Two Notes-per-String Shapes; Harmonic Major Scale - Vertical Shapes; Harmonic Major Scale - Three and Two Notes per String Shapes; Whole Tone Scale - Vertical Shapes; Whole Tone Scale - Three and Two Notes-per-String Shapes; Diminished HW Scale - Vertical Shapes; Diminished HW Scale - Four, Three and Two Notes-per-String Shapes; Diminished WH Scale - Vertical Shapes; Diminished WH Scale - Four, Three and Two Notes-per-String Shapes; Chromatic Scale - Vertical Shapes; Chromatic Scale - Four Notes-per-String Shapes.

Hi Friends!
As announced, here's a very interesting study from the London based Italian guitarist Fabrizio Brusca.
With this work, Fabrizio exploits the guitarLayers full potential and automation power by harmonizing different scales with custom R367 voicings, putting them in mutual relation on the fretboard, with layers, in order to show a very interesting voice-leading.

By visiting our forum at www.guitarlayers.com/forum/main-forum/, you can get the pdf files for simple consultation or, if you are a GL owner, the guitarLayers (.exgl) files in order to open the work inside the software and explore it dynamically (changing key centers, string sets, or choosing alternative shapes or solutions...).
Enjoy! 🙂

The basic inversions of a seven chord are very difficult to handle on the guitar, mainly because they are very stretchy to play.
The term Drop2 comes from taking the 2nd highest note and drop it down an octave, this makes it possible to get the notes together in one position.

📗 CASE STUDY - As the great Jerry Bergonzi suggests in his well-known book about pentatonic scales, here's a Bb major pentatonic mapped over an Ebmaj7 chord.
This concept let us avoiding the root and the 4th degree and leads us to an elegant modern sounding phrasing by targeting some interesting chord tensions.

In the picture below you can see the first five CAGED shapes plus some extra vertical shapes mapped together with some Ebmaj7 useful voicings.

Just a 5 minutes work, following the book, and using the automatic guitarLayers engines, its synchronous layering system, its endless structure editing capabilities, and the quick "copy and paste" functions.
No need to draw each single dot or be limited by some static preloaded shapes! 😉

Thanks to guitarLayers, you can not only visualize common scales, arpeggios and chords, but you are also allowed to create and modify them dynamically, note-by-note.
You can remove a degree from a given scale or chord or add a new note to it. You can raise or lower each single structure degree obtaining other common or new custom structures.
You can change the note order obtaining, in real time, scales modes, chord inversions and drop voicings.
Do it all automatically, save a huge amount of time and use it to play and practice.

C7(#9) Rootless and inversions
In many situations, with a bass player, it is possible to avoid playing the root of a given chord by substituting it with a tension.
These kind of chords are called "ROOTLESS".
This video shows how to quickly obtain some C7(#9) rootless voicings by modifying, inverting and dropping a common C7 chord on the first (1234) string set.

Four-notes chord voicings
From a combinatorial point of view it is possible to obtain 24 different voicings for a given four-note chord.
This video shows 20 of 24 possible voicings for a Bbmaj7 on higher string sets.
By exploiting guitarLayer's parametricity it is possible to calculate quickly all possible voicings both for common and custom chord structures on all the string sets or in a given vertical position.

The SUPERLOCRIAN SCALE creates that beautiful and elegant "Out of tonality" sound, very common among jazz musicians.
Here's a typical scenario: C Dorian scale (yellow) over a Cm7 chord and F Superlocrian (red) over F7.

Knowing scales shapes, in certain situations, isn't enough, it is also fundamental to be aware how to move from one scale to the following... music is a dynamic process! 😉

What chord is it?
Any structure can assume different harmonic functions and names depending on the root we intend for it. As Mick Goodrick suggests us, we have to analyze it over the twelve bass notes.
Although guitarLayers does it automatically it could be a good habit to do the job by ourselves. We at guitarLayers have done it for years and years
