Incredible Guitar Scales Reference

The Guitar Scales feature that you get to enjoy at Chord Finder is your gateway to learn guitar scales. For a beginner guitar scales can really be a little hard to master. Well, this is how simply the Guitar Scales app works.
First, you would have to select the key. You would have a choice of all keys that a guitar has, from C, C# to Bb and B. Once you have selected the key you would like to get the guitar scales, you would find all the information listed on the right. It will tell you the name of the guitar scales, notes, formula and its alternate names.

There are several options that you can try and play around with to know more about guitar scales.

This is where our Chord Scale Relationship app comes in.
