You shouldn't learn a particular scale but the general configuration or, in other words, patterns. There is a table that shows the frets (n) where the root of the scales should be placed. Try the Pentatonic and Diatonic page for a quick start. After you master the pentatonic/blues, major and minor scales, try “Toward Harmonic and Melodic” to step gradually from scale to scale. In “Some Chords” you will find an easy method to learn most of the extensions of the major, dominant and minor chords. Some Chords In the following charts, you will find another method to play Major, Harmonic and Melodic Modes. The modes you'll find inside the scale-charts:Major Modes | Harmonic-Minor Modes | Melodic-Minor Modes And here is the correspondence between the standard notation and the tablature:Standard Notation and Tablature

Melodic Patterns - 112 scale sequences for improving melodic freedom Practicing melodic patterns (sometimes called sequences) is one of the best methods available for learning scale fingerings. Their practice will also aid in learning the sounds of the various scales, as well as, help you to improvise lead lines from different scales. The concept is very simple, the variations endless. So, what are melodic patterns? A melodic pattern is a short melody or sequence of intervals that you play off of each successive tone of a scale, both ascending and descending. For example, let's look at a popular sequence: This simple pattern has been used in one form or another for hundreds of years. The important thing to look at is the concept. Now, if you continue all the way across the scale pattern it would look like this: Descending, the sequence looks like this: Notice that we didn't change the order of the notes within the sequence itself. In other words, if our sequence ascends like this: It descends like this: That variation will be covered by a different sequence.

Welcome to Custom Guitar Saddles - Pricing/Ordering Ordering instructions, shipping prices and payment instructions can be found at the bottom of the page My saddle is not listed! There are millions of guitars and nearly as many saddle configurations. 1 - have your saddle sent in to be copied I receive many send-ins every day, and this is the best way to ensure your replacement saddle is correct! One other important note: It is very helpful for me to know how the original saddle you'll be sending fits. 2 - obtain a full set of dimensions from your existing saddle ...including H x W x L, radius and compensation (if any), and these measurements will need to be taken with a dial caliper. I accept the following payment methods: Mailing address: Bob Colosi 107 Partridge Lane St Marys, GA 31558 1. 2. Go to PayPal at www.paypal.com and log in Click on the “Send Money” tab My PayPal email address is rcolosi@tds.net Calculate the price of the saddles plus desired shipping (shipping is the same regardless on the number of items ordered. or MASTERCARD

MUST HAVE AMP SETTINGS - HOME PAGE UberProAudio.com - Guitar Rigs, Gear Reviews, Musician Interviews Tube boost + overdrive running off a 9 volt battery In the continuing saga of my 6111 submini tube fetish, I tweaked this some more. After some breadboarding and measuring, it was clear that the 9v source in the previous schematic, as it relates to using the 6111, doesn't work well: - The heaters call for 6.3vDC. To get a nice stable 6.3v heater voltage, and to add a little bit more control, I put together a power supply based on the LM317 adjustable voltage regulator. Here's the schemo: And a picture on the breadboard: The end result with this new tweaked design is that it offers a substantial increase in boost over the 9v in/heater design, and the overdrive sounds a lot nicer.

Adam's Amplifiers: Subminiature Thursday January 5, 2006 by adam Sub-miniature tubes, also referred to as pencil tubes or hearing-aid tubes, are among the last generation of vacuum tubes designed and built. They’re typically very small, and instead of being socketed they have flexible leads like passive components. Some are designed to be run off of batteries (the hearing aid tubes), with very low heater & B+ voltages, while others were designed for military & industrial use. They’re not the smallest generation of vacuum tubes – that distinction probably goes to Nuvistors, but they maintain the classic glass envelope, letting you see the heater glow and internal structure of the tubes. I’ve always been interested in small & miniaturized things. Overdrive pedal, Matchless style Overdrive pedal — sky’s the limit (dumble style? This is a table of some of the sub-miniature tubes which run on 6.3V heaters and high voltage (>100V) B+ and are probably well suited to guitar projects. Guitar Amp Projects Hi Fi Amp Projects

Insert jacks for the 402-VLZ3 Here's the boards before the modification. Note the wires 2 and 4 (marked W2, W4 as silkscreened on the PCB): they're signal ch.1 & 2 and will be cut. W1 and W3 are signal grounds. The red circle is the capacitor to be displaced. The modified boards. The two INSERT jacks are added and the cap desoldered and placed horizontally: The detail of the 1/4 jack wiring. There's a 120Ω resistor on the send tip as described in this Mackie mixer schematicI don't know if it's mandatory...

The technology of phase shifters and flangers Practically every guitarist has heard the swirling, spacey sounds characteristic of a phaser or its cousin, the flanger. What is phase shift? There is only a little electronics knowledge needed here. If we have another sine wave that is the same size and frequency but has different zero crossing times, it is said to be shifted in phase relative to the first wave. If we have a situation where two waves of the same frequency, perhaps the same wave, but one image delayed a tiny bit of time, are added together somehow, they may reinforce one another or partially cancel one another. It turns out that the human ear is not too sensitive to phase shifts - that is, your ears can't really tell the difference between sounds that start by compressing your eardrum and ones that start by pulling out on your eardrums.
