There's only seven modes, which are not hard to figure out through the whole neck if you know your major scale, and most 'weird' scales are just a shift of one note here to there, etc.

Lets use the key of C major for example. the notes are A B C D E F and G with no flats, so it's easy to explain with. (note that the formula in steps for major scales are WWHWWWH)

All you have to do to start is find a C anywhere on the fretboard. Eg. 8th fret e string, 3rd fret A string, 10th fret d string, so on. Say we start on the 8th fret of the low e string, the next note after C is D, which is a whole step above C, so it would be 10th fret low e. After D is E, so 12th fret. For F since we have 3 notes on a single string we will go to the A string now, and since F is only a half step above E it would either be 13th fret on the low e or 8th on the A.

You just keep doing that, 3 notes per string, until you get to the high e and run out of strings. You will end up with something like this:

e -------------------------------------------10-12-13
b----------------------------------10-12-13----------
g--------------------------9-10-12-------------------
d------------------9-10-12---------------------------
a---------8-10-12------------------------------------
e-8-10-12--------------------------------------------

Note that 10 on D string and 13 on B string are C's, so you will start the whole scale over again.

Now to figure out how to go higher lets go back to the low e, but start on the 2nd degree of the scale, 10th fret, d. The note after that is e, you know where that is. Now to get the third note you would take the first note from the next string over and play it, so F would be on 13.

If you do the same thing for all strings, you will get this:

e-----------------------------------------------12-13-15---
b--------------------------------------12-13-15------------
g----------------------------10-12-14----------------------
d-------------------10-12-14-------------------------------
a----------10-12-14----------------------------------------
e-10-12-13-------------------------------------------------

You could call this the dorian position, as if you use these shapes with the 10 (d) as the root, you will be playing the dorian scale, but for are purposes it is still C major/ionian, and uses the exact same notes.

If you keep on doing this for every position of C major you not only can play C major anywhere on the fretboard, but you can play any of C major's relative modes, eg A aeolian, E phrygian, etc,

If you have a scale does not entirely conform to one of the modes, it is easy to modify it. So if we were playing A natural minor (uses same notes as C major, so we know all that stuff), and wanted A harmonic minor, all you have to do is raise the 7th degree (G) of the scale one half step, from a minor 7th to a major 7th, to get the notes A B C D E F G# <--- there's your harmonic minor scale. To play it on guitar whenever you would normally play a g, play a g#.


There you go. I just condensed virtually all the scale theory you have to know into the equivalent of 3 paragraphs and 2 diagrams. Happy?

This one is fully customize able. You select the instrument, tuning and then mode/scale/chord/key. There are a ton of modes/scales out there. Dig in.

look up study bass DOT COM. It's seriously worth it.

Sorry, can't post links yet.
