Check out the rest of the Synthetic Scales series starting here.
This new scale is called the Harmonic Major Scale and is a Mode. It is the 2nd mode of the Locrian bb7 Scale.
If we continue this exercise (starting from each note) we can complete the following table for all the modes of the Locrian bb7 Scale.
So there you have it, all 7 modes of the Locrian bb7 Scale, and you can play them in any key, just start on the note you want and play the correct intervals!!
As always, have a go at playing the scales yourself, it always helps to get the sounds of each in your head and your fingers!!
Until next week, have fun!!
