Parallel Scales does anybody use them?

Post by Lockie » Tue Feb 14, 2017 8:55 am

Hi

I am in the process of collecting any information about this subject. For example in the key of "C" all Major /minor modes, note / scale degree and names of all 7th chords in close harmony and CG playability.

I will share information collected, if anyone has an interest in the same. I would appreciate any advice or suggestions on misspelled chords or scale degrees etc.

I have always been curious to know how any piece of music could sound in different modes / minor or Major? Perhaps this database will make it possible on the wing.

Regards

Lockie

Hi

Yes and they can be played back as well in the form of a midi file. That makes it easy to hear any clerical errors or incorrect intervals. I intend to do a large collection of obscure scales that have been used in the past by various composer's. Just for curiosity and I hope to post them ASAP.

Good for you.
I was thinking about some Bach stuff.
A few passages here and there from various works.
A lot comes to mind.
More about that later.

Cheers

at the risk of being too gnomic, playing with themes amenable to modal mutation is something I do just about all the time. :)

Hi

Thanks for your reference to George Van Eps and all the other input.

Here is C Melodic Minor.

Please feel free to point out any errors as offence won't be taken. The chords for guitar interpretation is based on the Mickey Baker school of thought and my own preference. The musescore files are available if required and with those one has the capability to transpose.

More to follow.
