Colour Code System

The intervals are colour coded and correspond to the colours used in the intervallic structure page, this can be a useful way to identify intervals on the guitar fretboard. Further down this page you will find a colour code chart which is to be used in conjunction with the diagrams.

C Ionian Mode for example:



Remember that the colour coded intervals are measured against the colour black and are relative specifically to the finger positions of the scales and modes shown in the examples.

For example:

Red is a major 2nd away from Black

Orange is a perfect 5th away from Black etc...
