    My 1st post on here, so wanted to bump this post.

    I know a CrackBerry app is likely not gonna be, but I'd sure appreciate it!

    Hail!

    Looking at this site, I don't think that their scale dictionary is very... well, very good. Mostly because the names they are using are not what people typically refer to these scales as (as far as I know), or are pretty obscure. Examples:

    Whole - they mean "whole tone"

    Whole diminished - they mean "whole tone diminished"

    Pentatonic neutral - never heard of it, it's apparently a mixolydian or natural minor scale without a third or sixth.

    Half diminished - they mean half/whole diminished, or octatonic, which is alternating half steps and whole steps (i.e. T H W H W H W H [W to tonic]), numerically represented as 1 b2 b3 3 #4 5 6 b7. This is confusing, because there is a half-diminished chord, 1 b3 b5 b7, and nobody says "half diminished scale". If they did, I'd think "locrian mode".

    Whole diminished - same deal, they mean whole/half diminished, or octatonic. This is the other mode of the scale presented above. There is a "fully diminished" chord, 1 b3 b5 bb7, so it sounds like some sort of interchange of terminology, as above.

    Lydian minor - this one doesn't have a minor third, why call it minor at all? 1 2 3 #4 5 b6 b7 is an interesting scale formula, though. This is a mode of neapolitan major (which doesn't have a major third, ironically), if you want to know.

    Nine-tone scale? Which one?

    Auxilliary diminished blues - :rofl: *

    * See my sig.

    There are other bullshit scales/names here. I'm actually really dissatisfied with a lot of the scales resources that guitarists have to deal with.

    I don't know if anyone else is seeing this but I'm getting a big "Ads by google" box at the very far left hand side. So basically I can't see the first fret at all. Which really pisses me off because I've been looking for a 7 string drop G scale website all effin morning.

    :mad:"Fffffffffffuuuuuuuuuu Google!!!!!!":fawk:

    Thanks guys. I am loving all of the wonderful resources cited/linked in this thread discussion. I have been teaching "Begining Guitar" at my church for a year and a half now and all of this will come in handy.
