WhenEver I look up a new scale the only thing I see is a fret board and a bunch of dots on the frets. Can anyone tell me how to read this and why they do it this way

thats because that shows the notes wherever they are on the fretboard. understand that a scale is just a series of notes, not necessarily a pattern. break the fretboard into chunks where the notes in that section are no more than 5 frets away from each other to get patterns.

Gibson Faded Flying V
"Dante's Inferno" Iceman
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112
etc.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

the dots represent where the notes of a particular scale are on the neck.

Why do they do it that way ........ it's an easy to understand visual aid.

regarding the scale patterns in my sig..

colored notes = root note of scale
intervals are labeled
shred is gaudy music

It might help if you knew what scale you were looking up for what reason.
