So I thought what can I do that is useful without a guitar

I immediately thought about going through notes of major scales and triads and intervals etc (I know the common ones I use a lot but the others take a little thinking, and I'd like to have them nailed)

I started to devise a nice table that I could fill in to help things stick




As you can see simply building off the 3rds is fine most of the time but we get some places where they become b2 / b9 or #4 / #9

How often do we come across a III with a b2 in music or a IV with a #4 rather than a b5



Is it useful doing it this way or is there a more logical way to do this, I realise there might be a way of doing this which includes other more common chords as well as just intervals ?

Is there a better way to lay this out?

I'm looking for a nice template I can go through the circle of 5ths/4ths and get this all contained then apply it on the guitar when I have access.

Hey

Cool chart! Yeah the notes you mentioned are the characteristic notes of those modes. So b2(b9) over iiim7 makes that chord sound Phrygian. As well, the #4(#11) makes Lydian sound the way it does. So those are important notes in those modes and they make them sound different from say Aeolian, which has a natural 2, or Ionian, which has a natural 4.

So I just need to add 'markings like I did to the b3 / b5 and b7's

Cool

Yeah, for each mode I would highlight these notes

Ionian - 4
Dorian - 6
Phrygian - b2
Lydian - #4
Mixolydian - b7
Aeolian - b6
Locrian - b5

Those are the characteristic notes of each mode.

I missed the b6 on the VI and on the III and VII, shows how much more I need to look at my intervals!
