You could use this to write your own scales (I made it instead of practicing).
Pick a starting note on the circle and do either the major or minor scale pattern, Root, whole step (two jumps clockwise on the circle), or half step (one jump clockwise on the circle). #You can add the sharps and flat notation to the staff. #The 1o, 2o, 3o, 4o show where on the scale the open G, D, A, and E strings are respectively. #
You can use the space below to write out inversions for chords. The major minor chord convention is under the steps in the scale
MmmMMmmM #where M=major and m=minor.
These are helping me learn the neck.
For example if you want the D scale you start at D
up two to E up two to F# up one to G, up two to A, up two to B, up two to C# up one back to D.
Your Chords are D maj, E min, F# min, Gmaj, Amaj, Bmin, C#min, DMaj.
The chords are named with Roman Numerals
I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII #This is where you get the I, IV, V chord progression for so many songs.
A final goofy note (or chord) is the VI chord is the relative minor / major for the scale you are doing. #E.g., If your have the Dmaj scale we did above, the relative minor scale is C#min with the same notes and chords in it.
