Special Scale Syllabus
By: Lucas Pickford
This is a syllabus that you can use along with the Modes sheet to give you the formulas for most chord scales other than the regular major and minor. There are many hybrid scales that aren't included here but this should serve you well in most musical situations, especially when we consider Dominant chords and their possible scales. Refer to the "Which Scales Fit Which Chord Types" part of this article to learn where to use these scales. Since the Modes were already addressed and where to apply them, it's taken for granted that you're familiar with them. The H means half step and the W means whole step. This is how you'll be able to build these scales in any key. All examples are in the key of C. Here goes.
C,D,Eb,F,F#,G#,A,B,C - WHWHWHWH
Symmetrical Diminished Scale:
Lydian Dominant Scale:
C,D,E,F#,G,A,Bb,C - WWWHWHW
Altered Dominant Scale:
C,Db,Eb,E,FGb,Ab,Bb,C - HWHWWWW
C,D,E,G,A,C - The formula is to use the 1,2,5,6,8 of any major scale to get the major pentatonic scale.
