Guitar scale and Stay

Film watched:


5% genius and 95% drivel does not a good film make. Poor rubber reality film.


Guitar scale

This is something that I have been working on for a little while…

I wanted something which showed the musical scale of a guitar on a single sheet of paper. Something which linked the fret board notes (but not sharps and flats) and musical notation for easy reference. In addition, I also wanted something which also indicated the octave of the notes, again on the same single sheet of paper.

I’d had a look in the guitar books that I have and also online, but could not find anything to my liking and as such, decided to create something myself.

I created this in excel, and whilst pretty basic, it does its job well. Just for the sake of it, I took a screen grab (is there a better way to convert excel to a picture format?) and have placed it here… (not the best quality image, I know, but I wanted to blog about it anyway)

Looks very useful - if you want to make a better quality version, dump it to PDF. If you don't have this set up, send me the xls and I'll do it (Excel didn't have this built in for ages and you had to do it via a pseudo-printer, Open Office has had it built-in for years)
