Individual Chord & Scale Fingerings Individual Chord & Scale Fingerings
Unlike the Full Fretboard Chord and Scale Finder this area shows individual chord, scale or mode fingerings in playable forms. All scales are shown with 2 basic fingerings each (box form & 3-note per string form). All the chords are shown with 6 different chord fingerings each. The red dots in these chord/scale diagrams will be used to represent the root note of the chord or scale while all other notes will be shown white. For example, if the mode/scale selected is 'Dorian' and you play the scale fingering with the red dot on the note 'G' the scale would be 'G Dorian' which is the second mode in the key F Major.
