IMPROCHART

Improvisation, as it is generally understood in Jazz and Modern Music, consists in creating a melody suitable for a given chord progression. That part of the melody corresponding to each chord or group of chords is composed, in most cases, by notes belonging to a certain scale related to the chords.

IMPROCHART is an Improvisation Chart that allows us to automatically obtain all the scales related to a given chord. 10 basic chord types are considered, along with their different tensions. A complete set of scales has been considered as well, where Bebop, Pentatonic and Blues scales are not excluded. Moreover, a practical Scale table containing all the scales in all keys is also given. In order to use both the Chart and the Scale table, it is not necessary to know how to read music. Additional information can be found in the APPLICATIONS OF IMPROCHART section.
