Don't hold it against him...
The last one looks like a candy cane!
Or Barber pole.
Only good bump ever. Thanks for the chart
Far be it for me to question Holdsworth, but I'm pretty sure #4 isn't harmonic major. Harmonic major from what I know is major b6, not... whatever that is. And it would've been more useful had they all been in the same key >.>
OOOOOOH! Good eye Brian!
The name of Scale#4 should be "E Harmonic Major".
A Minor (Maj7, #4) - (E Harmonic Major)
That sounds really cool.
Do you happen to know which issue he wrote the article in/Where I can get it??(Im assuming he wrote it for guitar techniques)
I remember a similar article from way back in the early 90's by Shawn - its possible the one Mr Romeo is referring to is either in a same vein, or a re-write of that one. Either way I'd love to see it!!
Unfortunately, most of my issues of GT are stuck at my parents' house, but I'll investigate and see if I can find it for you.
Scale 4 is A Lydian Diminished, the fourth mode of E Harmonic Major (as was said before).
I believe scales 6, 7, and 9 are "bebop" scales.
Scale 6 is Bb Bebop Major scale.
Scale 7 is C Bebop Dominant Major scale, or alternatively, G Bebop Dorian scale.
Scale 9 is A Bebop Melodic Minor scale.
Scale 8 looks like some variation of a bebop scale but I'm not sure what the official name is...
And hell if I know what 10 is!
I am madly in love with Allan Holdsworth now. This may be a little off topic, but do you guys know any songs of his that are fairly easy to play?
I just love Allan and his music !!
will it be possible for you to get me the same maps in Eb for 6 strings guitar
here s my email laurent72 at gmail dot com
many thanks in advance
Just transpose it down one fret? If your tuning is Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb then you really don't need to change anything - the intervals are still all the same
I know that fretboard image
Thanks for using my app, hope you like it!
That chart is a great example of the commonality of the geometric similarities of the different scales. Okay beyond the last of course, which gives some great tonal variations/tensions to utilize when changing grooves or tie in to the next phrase.
For the shapes, that's how I think music now; the geometry of w/e, based over the scale and chords. The chords give a color/feel and geometry fits in/against said feel/color to either resolve or cause tension. After 3 decades of reading, writing & playing music, it becomes muscle memory almost.
Great tool/find to have @ anyone's disposal!
Sorry to necro bump this. But the video isn't working? Is there another vid of it on youtube if anyone knows what it is?
holdsworth is god, thanks for posting this!
I love these scales! now I have to learn how to use them!
