Adjustable Patterns shapes
The scales finder allows you to set the patterns in an intuitive way. Depending on the type of pattern you want to practice (4 frets box, 3 notes per string, extended patterns), by dragging horizontally the yellow handles you can set the width of the area in which your scale will be shown. This feature helps you gain fretboard knowledge and see a scale as a dynamic path along the fretboard, not as a static and immutable shape. Often, due the nature of the instrument, guitar players are stuck and trapped in fixed box scales shapes. Playing the same scale in different neck areas could help you break the cage and see the fretboard as a new world full of different options.
Metronome clicks could be boring! The scale finder plays the sound of the scale you selected and a drums audio track, in order to help you keep the rhythm and develop your sense of time. You can play the scale on your guitar while listening to the scales tool, and check if notes and tempo are correct. Plus, with the Speed Trainer features, you can tell the tool to increase the speed of the beat with minimal and imperceptible steps (for example 1 bpm every 4 bars). This will push you gradually out of your comfort picking speed, helping you develop speed and accuracy on guitar.
For your convenience, here below you find all the guitar scales and arpeggios contained in the scale generator software. This kind of visualization helps you understand the whole-steps and half-steps structure of the different types of scales and arpeggios. One exercise useful to memorize and internalize the sound of each scale is to play the scale on one single string, following carefully the interval structures shown below.
