  6. Hi Rob, these are very helpful. I bought the 8 string kindle version too on Amazon. I did find some issues though, your aeolian and harmonic minor sheets have wrong notes. when you go to the octave on the low f# it should be a flat 3 not a 3. This isn't a huge deal but when learning these they need to be as accurate as possible. Thanks

    1. Mike,
      Thanks for reporting the errors. Much appreciated.
      I'll get them corrected tonight.
      You go "Dot blind" after making all this, so an extra set of eyes really helps.
      Thanks again,
      Rob

    Thanks for these resources. Really rare on the web and super helpful to an 8 string newbie.
    Just seen some video of people messing around with diminished scales and was wondering if there's any chance of doing an 8 string diagram for them?

    PS The Guitaronomicon is on my Christmas list!
