The Dorian mode.

RIP "Machete."

Never before had a cat endured being made to wear so many hats, hastily constructed by drunk people with such good humour...

So, Dorian mode time.

The Dorian mode is made of the the intervals, 1,2,b3,4,5,6,b7.

Of all the Greek Modes, I once read that Spartan soldiers were only allowed to listen to music composed in Dorian, because the other modes were not stern and manly enough, or words to that effect. I should probably check if that was true, but hey!

The Diagrams below lay  out the scale all over the neck, as a four note per string three octave scale and as the seven three note per string shapes that will let you play it all over the neck.
