TABS - Scales and Chord Progressions Reference

If any of you musicians have come across tabs for any cool scales or chord progressions, POST EM! I'll try and find some cool ones, and write down some of my favs.

-I'll probably end up making this a sticky if it works out good.

Well I can't really contribute because I'm relatively new to guitar and am still working the the basics (major/minor), but sweet idea!

I can scan in some basic Major scale exercises, but it's in notated not tab form.

That still cool?

whatever you want to add... even if its simple, I just figured we'd make our own reference here. I always like to learn some new sweep arpeggios.

Adam (Forbidden) has a couple of sweet exercises for working on string skipping/left hand work out stuff... not sure if I still have them or not.

Probably the most overrated and terrible book I've seen on theory. Not surprised you would recommend it.

Luke, I definitely trust your judgement... cause i know you lay down the shred. I was just wondering if you have any tips or books to refer us to?

For all things chords and chord progressions , if you can find them..


Chord Camp 1
Chord Camp 2
Chord Camp 3

All by Tommy Armstrong, a local Sacramento teacher based out of Skips Music. These are seriously the best. As for scales, I still haven't found any that I've liked which is why I went to a teacher. Monster Scales and Modes by Dave Celentano was decent and fairly concise, not sure if its still on the shelf these days. For those chord books though I'd give Skips Music a call and see if you can order them, or email them and get in touch with Tom. A student of mine recently mentioned CC 3 was out of print.

But anyways, the Guitar Grimoire is a joke. The guy who wrote that thing obviously intended to make it look like the most complex, difficult and painful instrument on the planet when its really supposed to be fun.

The string skipping/alternate picking/left hand workout that Ronnie is talking about is as follows...Nothing extremely mind blowing but it works!

Code:
-------------------------------------8---7---6-----
-------------------------8---7---6-----------------
-------------8---7---6-----------------------------
-8-9-7-9-6-9---9---9---9---9---9---9---9---9---9---
---------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------

-7---8---------------------------------------------------
---------6---7---8---------------------------------------
---------------------6---7---8---------------------------
---9---9---9---9---9---9---9---9-6-9-7-9-8-9---9---9---9-
---------------------------------------------6---7---8---
---------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------
---9---9---9---9---9---9---9---9---------------------
---------------------8---7---6-----------------------
-6---7---8---7---6-----------------------------------

Repeat from start, it's a looping pattern...
Obviously each finger plays it's own fret (I=6, M=7, R=8, P=9), and it anchors off the pinky just to make it harder since that seems to be everyone's weak point. I came up with this like a year ago, it's a great warmup and has done wonders for my alternate picking. Not exactly a scale or chord though, haha...

The pattern is really obvious when you start to play it, once you get it under your fingers it's just the right hand that you need to concentrate on...

Thanks for posting that Forbidden! It looks good.
Certain parts of that are damn hard for me. So I know it will help a lot.

Thats a load of fucking bullshit, and you would only say it because you are a fuckin arrogant prick that has to have the ULTIMATE answer.

Its a great book for under $20.

How is a book that goes over all major modes plus about 20+ other scales showing them in all positions and keys in an easy to read format for under $20 a joke? Its not the end all to end all book, but its a great place to start.

Yeah playing guitar is fun, to bad fucking cheese dicks such as your self make it into a competition.

Wow, I'm surprised to see someone else mentioning this book. I bought this book a long time ago. I thought it was decent at the time. It has pretty much all the regular known scales out there, plus tons of exotic scales.

The only thing I didn't like is that it only showed each scale drawn out on the fretboard in one key. So if you wanted to play the scale in a different key you either had to damn good with the scale and the ability to play it shifted up or down on the fretboard (which I was not and still am not) or you had to draw it out yourself on paper which is what I did. But the book would be probably 6 times thicker if all scales were drawn out in every key.

Here again, a decent book that was only like $20 or so.

Slighly different to all the finger exercises you can find, There's a couple of good interval trainers online. Great for developing the musical ear; the all important relative pitch.

Here is something I came up with this evening... pretty simple little arpeggio. If you were to sweep it, it might sound cool too. Since I'm not super gnarly I need to work up to that a bit.



Here is an mp3 of me playing it, my playing could be a lot smoother because I just came up with it. But so you get an idea.

I have a ton of more things I'll post if anybody wants them.

Sure man, there's some free ones here:-

'Ear Toner' seems the simplest one to use for single notes, some of the others get more technical.
Pretty boring compared to playing guitar, but quite helpful to improvisers when done for 5 minutes a day or something.

Yeah, I thought string skipping was actually skipping a string, such as playing a note on string 6, and then the next note on string 4 (skipping string 5).

But anyways, the stuff dude posted is some awesome stuff to check out.
