    Does anyone know of a set of charts where I can find all modes in all scales as a teaching aid?

    I have the 1st, 2nd and 5th in an Aebersold book but I'd like to get all of them

    Thank you- I did Google it- I couldn't find exactly what I am looking for though. What I really want is something that is a sheet music version and has every mode in ever key- I haven't been able to find exactly that.

    I could check the Mel Bay thing out at the local music store to see if they have it

    I use a book called "Scales for Jazz Improvisation" by Dan Haerle

    It has all the scales for each mode presented on one page, and the opposing page has the scale explained (what's flat or sharp, what modifications it has compared to a major scale, what kinds of chords you would use this scale for, etc.. You you get a page for each mode, major, minor, diminished, pentatonic, blues.

    Don't forget to "top it off" with whole note scales in all keys. Don't need a download for these, just visualize the black and white keys on the keyboard. If you start white in the first part of the scale (from C to E) stay white until you get to F# than go black until you get back to C#. If you start black from (C# to D#) you go white when you hit F and stay white until you get to C# again.

    Craig Fraedrich's Web Site. Scales for improvisation. It has what you're looking for and is a free dowload. The Dues Etudes books are also free, and fun to play as well. :)

    I presume you mean modes of all **ordinary** major scales.

    I don't think the OP is after mastering their scales in mixolydian...

    Try putting the books away once you know the formula for each scale and work them around the circle by ear. Internalize and develop your ear to finger speed ratio and try to get away from academics and thinking too much. Next work patterns based off the memorized scales around the circle by ear. Books are good for reference but you have to get past the knowledge point to the application point. Also familiarize yourself with songs that use those scales as well. Horace Silver's Nica's dream for example is a great song to practice the harmonic minor scale but it also has a few minor iib5-V7 -i progressions with in it.
