Daniel’s insights into guitar fretboard organization and jazz improvisation.


You’ve reached the landing page for “FordScales,” a collection of unique insights made over the course of a lifetime of guitar study.  Driven by a quest to perform bebop on guitar, FordScales began as certain key epiphanies about fretboard organization made during the second half of the 1990’s.  My research grew from there, incorporating various additional contrasting approaches, and it remains an ongoing process of discovery and proof through application.  If you know me in the physical world and would like participate in FordScales research and development, please contact me through the usual channels!

Best wishes,
Daniel Ivan Ford
