heres another 2 vital metal scales im surprised havnt been mentioned yet; the DIMINSHED beasts!

the 2 main types: Whole-Half dim and Half-Whole dim


ill show them in a simple tab scaley thing

HALF-WHOLE in E: E F G G# A# B C# D

e---------------------------------------------------0-1--34
B-------------------------------------------0--2-3
G---------------------------------0-1--3-
D----------------------0--2-3-
A-------------1-2--4-
E-0-1--3-4

notice how each set of notes are in 'clumps' of 2? its one half interval, then a whole


the WHOLE-HALF is similar, but like this

in E: E F# G A A# C C# D#

e-------------------------------------------------0--2-3
B---------------------------------------1-2--3
G-----------------------------0--2-3
D--------------------1-2--3
A---------0-1--3-4
E-0--2-3

D-----6"-------5"---9-8-6-4-----------------------
A---6"---6"-7"-----7-6-4-2---0"-4"-7"-0"-6"-7"-6"-4"
