Once you know them up and down, learn where they start for each key. Soon, you'll be able to solo like a pro. Gain more versatility by playing in different modes.

TIPS FOR THE SCALE CHARTS:
- Black dots are regular notes.

- Blue dots are 'passing notes'. Including these notes puts you in a Blues mode.

Good Stuff

This app is great. I use it at work on my lunch break or in between renders. Finally got some new tracks. Thanks for that. Great app though and worth the money. Thanks.

I like Jam Tracks because of it’s simplicity…

Very helpful…

Although, it could use a little more functionality.
Chord progressions and scale patterns can't to be viewed at the same time.

It’s important to understand the best note choices(chord tones) in relation to the chords.
As opposed to just running through scales tones (other than the Root & b5 or Blues note).

I do like the Modal tracks…!

Other then that… its a great app!
