The Woodshed

Thesaurus of Scales and Melodic Patterns


There is an edition dedicated specifically to guitar. Does anyone work with it? Is it user friendly? Is there something you recommend more? Trying to acquire actual literacy finally...


I have the thesaurus and have used it with saxophone. Its food for thought. Too much and one palindronic canon (!) sounds like another to me.

For guitar common scales inc melodic minor and harmonic minor,position playing,fingering i got something out of Ivor Mairants book of daily exercises which is online as a PDF. All exercises are in notation w fingering and positions ,good old book ! My apologies if i have missed your point.
