e------------------------------------7-8-10-12-14-15-|
B------------------------------7-8-10----------------|
G-----------------------4-5-7-9----------------------|
D------------------4-5-7-----------------------------|
A---------0-2-3-5-7----------------------------------|
D--0-2-3-5-------------------------------------------|

NOTE: Drop D tuning.

Standard tuning would look like this (first note omitted):

e------------------------------------7-8-10-12-14-15-|
B------------------------------7-8-10----------------|
G-----------------------4-5-7-9----------------------|
D------------------4-5-7-----------------------------|
A---------0-2-3-5-7----------------------------------|
E----0-1-3-------------------------------------------|


Thanks .

I was learning a song with this scale as the improv part. And I can't remember which song it was or the name of the scale.

The first 8 notes make a D Dorian scale but yeah, bangoodcharlote's right, that's not a scale.

Oh... . Are there any scales that are close to those notes?
Are you sure about that low F note? If that's an F#, then it's just a G major scale (or one of the modes, perhaps D Mixo).

Oh yeah the "mixo" thing. So I take out the 2 on the E string?

EDIT: Ohh wait. I'm confused. (And i'm going to be taking Music Theory next school year *faceplam*.)

I take out the 1 on the E?

I have no idea what you're trying to play, but if you raise that F note to an F#, then you have the G major scale.

Don't take it out, just raise it to F#.

Which note to change. Can you give me the tab number instead of the note? because for some reason my brain is not understanding
Move the 3 on the low D string (the 1 on low E) up a fret. Do the same for all other Fs (I didn't check if there are any others, nor will I).

Edit: Your changing of this note does not change what was originally played, which may have included F notes.

whats the song you were learning??


Oh yeah, sorry. It was "Stream" by Tim Reynolds. The ironic part is that I was playing it as I was typing.

EDIT: And that I have a thread about it in the "Advanced Techniques" sub-forum.

That's a pretty significant difference.

What you're describing is like saying New York City and Islamabad, Pakistan are the same just because they're populated by humans.

They have different tonal centers, different intervals and are applied in different settings. The order matters here, so dismissing them as "the same" is wrong.

i didnt believe that it was a scale as a run, i was assuming that it was notes from a solo, or chord progression that he just wrote out.

Different chords are used in minor progressions. Different notes are used in minor melodies. As it is commonly written (theoretically), yes they are the same except for the tonal center and the order. In practise, they are completely different scales, as so much alteration is needed to be done to the minor scale to make it resolve/move right.

Most of those notes T/S posted are in G major. It cant be a mode unless theres harmonic content underneath (chords, arpeggios riffs so on), remember

You can imply chords with what you play as well.

where did the notes come from? is it a run, or like what?
