You may recognize the guitar scale finder below. It’s the same application as the guitar arpeggio finder, but on this page I’m going to show you how to use it for guitar scales.
This online scale finder application helps you explore different scale form possibilities on the neck of the guitar. And learn guitar scales in a more interactive way that normal scale charts.
See the video at the bottom of this page for how to use the guitar scale finder.
Guitar Scale Finder & Java Security Warning
No one likes to see a security warning on a webpage. And when you click on the link above you may see this warning pop up.
The guitar scale finder is safe to use. You see that the warning says “An unsigned application from the location below…” An “unsigned” application mean the programer who made this cool guitar scale finder is not paying hundreds of dollars per year to register it.
The warnings for this program only started recently when a newer version of Java was released. That’s the programing language the guitar scale finder is written in. And really Java just wanted to cover their own butts by giving extra security warnings.
You can find out more info about this “unsigned” warning on the Java Website about half way down on the page.
I thought about just removing the guitar scale finder from the site when the warnings started, but it’s too cool of a program.
So to use this guitar scale finder you need to….
1. Check the box that says “I accept the risk and want to run this app”
2. Check the box that says “Do not show this again for this app”
3. Click the run button.
4. Have fun with the Guitar Scale Finder.
If for some reason you do not see the guitar scale finder or are have any other problems, you will need to install the latest version of Java on your computer. You can download and install Java here.
Here is a video you can watch to get up to speed with how to use the online guitar scale finder.
