MAMI eases, speeds + gives working logic for Music Scales / Chords Studies + Teaching using Charts Diagrams focusing on 3 areas:
1) Visually charting the study Scale, Chord or Arps’s Notes + Intervals, including all Modes + Inversions, plus Instrument Locations using our Music Scale Chart Diagrams. With MAMI, you see all patterns + fingerings very quickly, so creating ideas is easy!
2) Helping you to understand all of the potential musical uses for a study Scale or Chord.
You’ll find many interesting, cool, favorite music scales upon which to create your own ‘sound’, style, ideas + even original compositions!
Learn the scale notes throughout the entire Instrument.
Get quick, easy visualization towards playing scale based harmonies
Develop the critical understanding + value of thinking more
Sadly every day, musicians continue to lose their potential to go from ‘average’ to ‘good to great’: simply because they don’t yet use a system to quickly visualize, analyze and understand the useful applications of musical scale elements.
Development plus productivity lost, by not being able to integrate the use of arpeggios, chords, inversions, music scales + modes on their instruments that using MAMI provides.
Is this you? Are too often your practice drills or teaching lessons ending up as mindless finger exercises with little analysis, thought or comittment towards actually understanding the study element’s overall sound, purpose + all of its creative uses on your instrument?
MAMI Diagrams = Problems solved!
Back to our subject scale test from above.
Were you able to come up with any good ideas?
If you don’t read music, I’ve helped by now giving you both the
scale notes and interval relationships below: so time to really get started!
This is not your Dad’s Major Scale!
The addition of the Gb note as a passing tone creates some really interesting melodic
as well as harmonic possibilities that extend from all of its modes.
You can spice up a plain old 2-5-1 progression using the b5th as melodic coloration
and as a harmonic pivot to build and discharge tension within this motion.
If you’re a trained and sharp musician or teacher you might recognize
and play some great harmonies based on the Gb to C tritone interval. What are they?
Get the MAMI Music Note Chart Diagram below.
Using M.A.M.I. you’ll easily be able to see all of the arpeggios, chords, inversions
plus modes, both visualized + analyzed completely.

If you settle for using standard chord + music scale charts
to study instead of using MAMI Diagrams, you -will- limit and
cheat your self in the long run!
Why?…Because over time you will learn that it is not helpful or good enough to learn one chord or even one scale fingering to play music.
Sure, you need to be able to connect chords to form progressions. However eventually you’ll need to be able to choose from different chord forms (voicings / inversions) to create various sounds or make things easier to finger. Also you’ll need to be able to choose to play scales based melodies in many
different places on the instrument and / or from different starting notes… using modal ideas… to make fresh, interesting, as well as creative lines.
You’ll benefit by finding your own instrumental approach. The MAMI Scale Atlas format allows you to integrate your chords and scales study easily and accomplish several things at once so that you save time and learn both the scales notes, intervals plus your instrument much faster. So you will begin to learn more quickly and efficiently!
With MAMI you will able to look at the scale and immediately see the notes, intervals, modes, melodies and harmonies contained within.
Neither the plain musical staff nor even the other instrumental chord or scale charts can help you this way. You’d need to spend much money to purchase plus countless more hours using the several different reference / study tools replaced by our Musical Scales Atlas.For a couple of bucks a page, or for less that the cost of one private lesson you can own an integrated musical chord and scale study reference that you will use for life and never outgrow.
Your MAMI Musical Scales Atlas will reward you with more interesting, creative ideas such to make you a better Instructor, Teacher Student, Player, Composer, Improviser and Musician speeding towards your goals.

All great players, composers and instructors realize the importance of using musical scales for music creation and improvising.
Why? Because quite simply, whether by the composer’s intention…or accident…all melodic and harmonic movements are relative and can be analyzed with relationship to some music scale.
They realize that the mood and psychological effect of tunes are greatly influenced by the choice of note / interval combinations that ultimately form scales as well as that can be derived intentionally by using intelligent music scale selection by design.
A tune’s melodic and harmonic canvass effects the listener tremendously. Dictated by its scale’s notes and the interval relationships between these notes in the way that a picture’s colors effect its viewers. Improvisation makes this is a powerful concept even more a reality!
