Fretboard Chart: A Alt Scale

Ok, apparently I am on a roll. I just created another scale fingering chart for the A alt. or fully altered scale. This is a scale that I am just starting to get comfortable with as an improvisor so I went ahead and made another chart as a guide for myself. The alt scale is useful for jazz junkies and/or people who love dissonant sounds (like me).

The altered scale is called that because every note in it is altered in some way – 1 is normal, 2 is flat, 3 is flat, 4 is flat, 5 is flat, 6 is flat and 7 is flat. For all the theory nerds out there, the alt scale is derived as the 7th mode of the melodic minor scale. So it basically sounds super funky. I have also been challenging myself to make 10 new voicings for alt chords, so I may make a post on that as well. Cheers!
