THE KAMAVARDHINI SCALE for LEFT HANDED GUITAR

 

The Kamavardhini Scale (Some times without the H) is an Indian scale containing the intervals: 1, b2, 3, #4, 5, b6, 7. 

I discovered this through an Instagram post, and go really excited because I'd not heard it before. I had a quick play and a google.

 According to Wikipedia, Kamavardhini literally means "that which increases desire". 

So use this sparingly :-)

Mapped out here for LEFT HANDED GUITAR.

The boxes below show you the scale over the whole neck, as a 3 octave scale and as the 7 three note per string positions that link together to let you play it any where on the fretboard.
