    hey bunny ... hehehe (nice name)

    there is no point in all scales of guitar ... coz there is only one big scale ... known as chromatic ... which has 12 notes ... yes all the notes between octaves ...

    but speaking of traditional approach ... music is usually minor scales or major scaled ... leariin those scales on the fret will make u go places ...

    first of all major scale ... i'll take example of C major (coz it is easier to type) ...
    B.T.W. i hope u know all the notes on the guitar ... like if u wanna play A note .. then u can play on 5th string open, or 6th string - 5th fret ... etc ...

    so C major scale ... = C D E F G A B ...
    chords in C major scale = Cmaj Dmin Emin Fmaj Gmaj Amin Bdim

    so technically speaking u can make a switch from any of these chords to another (in the same scale) ...

    this C major scale can be transposed to any other root also like G = G A B C D E Fb

    there was one thread by Amit82cse which deals with all this in detail ... right now am feeling too sleepy (too many squats and crunches today) ...

    and Happy Independence Day !!! ...

    ahh dude ... today too many bench-presses and pull-ups ... am dead tired ... :grin:

    yaar as i said earlier ... no one is stoping u from making countless number of scales ... no one can complain ... u have 12 notes to u ... taht makes 12! scales ... which is a very very big number ...

    b.t.w. here are some of the un-commonly used scales ...

    but i stick to my guns ... and Mr Marty Friedman also says the same thing ... make up your own scale ... the onli thing that matters is that it should sound good ... the way u want it to sound ...

    @ssslayer - 12! scales is a wrong number cos the order of the notes is not important. so try to use a combination instead of permutation.
    by my calculations, since we can have scales of anywhere from one note to 12, the total number of scales should be

    but since ncr-nc(n-r)

    total no of scales=2x(12c1+12c2+12c3+12c4+12c5+12c6)

    haha ...

    array yaar ...
    Permutations and Combinations (along with Probability) has not been one of my math strengths ...
    infact i remember chucking that whole topic for JEE ;)

    so i just threw some mumbo-jumbo ... good u caught me ... :eek:: yeah its true ... 12! cant be coz it also takes into account the order of the notes ... so yes combinatorics have to be used ...

    so the final expression that u have given seems to be correct ...
    anyway i was dead tired ... so u know i have an excuse ... :grin: ...

    yaaar ssslayer u r still not understanding wht i am asking...i know that one scale can be played in thousand ways but wht i am asking is the basic scale like once i knew the scales of c and e minor ......they were like (as far as i remember) C:c...e...f..g...d....c..
    something like yr perivious post u gave me an example of C major : so C major scale ... = C D E F G A B ...
    chords in C major scale = Cmaj Dmin Emin Fmaj Gmaj Amin Bdim
    wht i want is all the scale like this ....first the scale and then the chords that go along with it......
    i think there are 12 scales in total(inculding all the minor and majors) but a milloin ways to play those....
    if u r too tired to do this (like always )then post a link in which i can get all the scales and the chords that go along with it
