Synthetic Scales

In theory scales that fall outside the sphere of major or minor or the modes are known as synthetic scales. One of these scales is called the whole tone scale. Others include the diminished scale and the pentatonic scales. Also known as the augmented scale the whole tone scale divides the octave into 6 equal intervals into a whole tone each.

Minor 7th Arpeggios

In this Lesson we will look at some Minor 7th Arpeggios. As Mentioned in the previous Major 7th Arpeggio lesson, we said an Arpeggio was playing a chord one note at a time rather then all at once. First let's look at a basic arpeggio in the key of A Minor.

Major 7 Arpeggios

In this Lesson we will look at Major 7th Arpeggios. An Arpeggio is playing a chord one note at a time instead of strumming at once. I'm sure there's a more technical definition of what an arpeggio is but mine is in layman's terms. Let's get started.

The Double Harmonic Scales

The double harmonic scale can be represented by the following notes c,d flat, e, f, g, ab, b. This is the only prime scale that is not proper, and with three types of second (major, minor and augmented) it is a melodically rough scale.
