Guitar scale posters

A few years ago I was trying to learn some new scales on guitar and came up with a little script to generate some nice reference posters as a learning aid.

We had our own in-house digital printing equipment at work and so I created a few posters and printed some out for my brother and I. I then decided to update the little script and add it to my website for other guitarists to use.

The script became quite popular but I ended up switching webhosts and redesigning my website and lost the script. I recently found it while going through some old backups and I've spent the last few days integrating it into this new site, check it out below:


The posters created by this script are intended as a visual aid for guitarists. They can be used as a quick reference to help you play in key and learn the various positions that different scales can be played in.

Use the simple form below to produce your very own poster

Strings Tuning Key
     

Recent Additions:
Created new default colour sets that are crisper and use less colour.
Added the option to customize the colours (not quite all yet).

In Progress:
Fix display of b/# marks to properly show flats or sharps in certain scales/modes.
Add extra page sizes and DPI options.

To Do:
Add more tunings and option to manually adjust the tuning's notes.
Add more string options (only when custom tunings are done).
Add more scales and the ability to submit new scales to be added.

Love your scale poster generator. Absolutely fantastic!!! I'm both a developer and aspiring guitarist. I've thought about trying to develop some kind of scale generator. I think about it for an hour or two and scrap the idea...
