    Staff paper sheets?

    Microsoft Paint! :Smug:

    Seriously, that and my Rapidesign Rapid-Composer R-1200 music stencil.

    Print up a couple of sheets and take 'em to work.

    You don't have 5 minutes? :confused: I think you could do it if you take some time away from UM. Hell, you could do it while you're on UM! :Spin:

    I is teh n00b epics when it comes to theory.

    I'm surprised I passed this up. I liked the charts you posted Ozz. I need to start practicing this shit. I need to stop just playing guitar to learn songs, practice techniques, & improvise; i need to start appying more theoretical shit to guitar. I do know a bit of theory, but I literally do not know how to apply it to the instrument.

    Don't those modes contain the same exact notes of the G Major scale?? That what it sounds like you were hinting at. I just can never remember the order of the modes of the major scale.

    That's the point of the modes. You can play any of them and they will be in key (relative to what key the song is in, of course)

    G major: G A B C D E F# G
    A dorian: A B C D E F# G A
    B phrygian: B C D E F# G A B

    etc

    So if a song is in the key of A you can play B Dorian right because it contains the same notes as the A Magor scale?? What would make it a B Dorian instead of an A Magor scale?? It doesn't have anything to do with the note you start on, does it??

    B dorian is the second mode of the major scale. It's all the notes on the A major scale starting on B (the second degree (note) of the major scale)

    B Dorian = A major scale with a different start note basically

    It often helps to play over certain chord progressions and not others in order to get the unique sound of a given mode. So instead of running through the E phrygian mode over a standard progression in A minor, e.g. Amin, Dmin, E (or Emin), Amin, it would be better to play over a chord progression such as E, F, G, F, E.

    Wouldn't E Phrygian be out of key in the second progression?

    Uhh, sort of. I should've said E phrygian dominant, which would be: E, F, G#, A, B, C, D

    E phrygian would be the same as above except with a G natural not a G#, so that wouldn't quite match up with an E major chord.

    Isn't Phrygian Dominant a mode of the Harmonic Minor scale?

    Here's a very helpful site, especially is you use weird tunings, or just down-tune to different tunings -

    It allows you to type in the tuning, scales, etc, then you can print out a diagram of the guitar or bass neck and see all the notes displayed.

    http://www.studybass.com/tools/chord-scale-note-printer/

    It's a pretty informative website in general.
