Guitar Resources

Back in the dim and distant days of 2002 James discovered a fascinating Mnemonic for remembering Diatonic Modes on the guitar. It's one of the most frequently visited pages on this site. And it's FREE.

Feel free to Print this table, and click here for a full explanation - there's also a Left-Handed version. Music is a universal language of peace, so, you're welcome!
