I was lost in shadow for a while, but I'm back. This is a set of modes for the melodic minor scale. I chose the key of G for convenience.

Another set of fretboard charts, this time for the modes of the Harmonic Minor Scale.

I am no longer maintaining a personal website so I rely on sites like imageshack and Photobucket to show my data.
What I have been posting previously has been on the order of screen shots from my personal files.
The previous sets were at 72 ppi and I got no complaints about size before.
This one is at 300 ppi and I can go as high as necessary for any image.
Should I post a survey asking exactly how big the graphics I post should be for ease of use?

The all guitar chord link was very nice, but I took to building my own due to a lack of flexibility in sites such as that.
Time permitting I will be posting scale and chord charts for (at least most of) the 462 scale forms.
If the images I use are really too small, maybe I should know now begore I get in too deep.

Here is a list of the Harmonic minor modes with an eye to constructing them in any key. The first column has the name, the second has the steps, the third an example in the key of C and the fourth the intervals between each step. Debatable whether this is any more useful than the fretboard charts, but I am a fan of presenting such things in multiple formats.

An alternate name for the 5th mode of harmonic minor is
mixolydian b9 b13. I like that a little better than a phrygian reference because it's usually used over a major triad or a dom7 chord.

Could go either way though.

Sean,

Phrygian Dominant has always sufficed for me.

That tells you that it's Dominant and that it has a b9 (and a b13) as well.



Stringbreaker,
that's funny because people usually complain about images being too big.
Personally I like the smaller sized ones you posted.
They're just right and you can fit a bunch on one print size page. Kind of convenient.
