The top fretboard is the Major Pentatonic which turns out to be very similar to the Diatonic scale used with stick dulcimers, shown in the middle. The bottom fretboard is a "Bluescimer" (Blues Scale) fretboard. To do the Blues justice, I think I need to use heavier strings and perhaps a longer fretboard. The fret 0 (nut) is shown on the right.
