Yea,

as I'm surfing it all thru now, it's really good!

I wish I'd been learning German better. Though it may become another chance for me :)

Yup, Rainer B, the guy whoŽs hosting the site, really is a very dedicated guy, and the articles he wrote on playing the bass and music theory are definitely worth checking out... great stuff, well explained... if you speak German.
I recommend to stay away from my guitar articles there, they are pretty old and outdated, I cringe when I go through them... maybe one day IŽll have them updated, but right now there isnŽt enough time, and the time I have available I dedicate to ibreathe :)
Warm regards
Eric

thanx, but a bit to late, I recently wrote a song that features 99,9% of them.
I wish you would have posted this earlier for the 0,1% that are missing...
anyway, thanks...

Sorry... I didnŽt wanna post that list before learning, memorizing and using each and every one of those scales to make sure theyŽre listed correctly and sound good.
Once my signature-model ( a 49 fret guitar with moveable frets, transtuning system and an integrated slide bar fixed to an iron bar above the fretboard... ) is finished, IŽll surely do an album based on those scales... "Music ThatŽll Kill Yer Cat, Opus 1"

Only learn em ? HA ! Harmonize them ! Make up chord scales for each one of em !
That article will be available as a downloadable 6000 page pdf-file... if youŽve got a dial-up-modem, youŽre pretty much screwed... :)

The whole Talking Hands Tutorial seems impressive to me. I have already trespassed the restricted area :D

I guess we'll need to breed some mutant shredders at IBreathe secret lab who will be capable of playing cool licks based on these scales.

Any musical biologists on board?

ME HERE!!! :D

Just about to read the last 1000 posts I have missed over the last few weeks. Sorry, I know I was a bit sparse lately but I have been so damn busy workwise that I didn't have any time for other things at all. But I think (hope) the worst is over and things return to normal from now on ...

What a list of very handy scales!!! I'm so disappointed that Berklee failed to teach me all of these. Maybe I would have switched to sitar and found my real calling in life by drifting away with a moody 'Naghmeh Abu Ata' :D

Gunharth Lives!!!

Yes, the 'Naghmeh Abu Ata' is The One for you!

Everyone realizes of course that some lonely guy simply took every possible combination of tones & semitones, then made up exotic-sounding names for them, right?

That's how I see it as well - sure some scales will have their cultural origin - but I gave up analysing after 'Patet Barang with Pelog' - sounds more like an asian dish and I'm not a big fan of sushi ....

LOL... yeah. Imagine youŽre booked for a studio session, and you show up with yer guitar and go "Ok, what do you want me to play ?"
And the producer says... "Well... uhm... IŽll have some Hirajoshi with a few slices of Dorian Pelog, with some Patet Barang sauce, and a bit of neapolitan Honchoshi on top. For dessert, gimme some Raga Sarvasri, the spicy kind... to go !"

Well, yeah, I think this list is a bit much, but hey, maybe one day IŽll go through a few more of those scales.
I have experimented with Hirajoshi, Pelog, the Hindu Scales and some others in the past, with some very cool results... but for now, IŽll stick with the good olŽmodes n`stretch pentatonic :)
