Hello and welcome to my music theory page. Make yourself at home, and
feel free to download any of the scales or explainations here.  
Please come back and study with me again.

Notice: Everything here is how I understand theory, and may not be correct, although I strive to make sure it is. If anything is not, please direct my attention to it.


Scales and Modes

The seven different modes are named after seven provinces in Greece.
I have all the keys in every mode here.  Just click on the name to
see the scales.  the b's and #'s are the notes you flat or sharp 
to get a particular scale from the Ionian (Major).

Ionian (Major)

Dorian (b3, b7)

Phrygian (b2, b3, b7)

Lydian (#4)

Mixolydian (b7)

Aeolian (Minor)(b3, b6, b7)

Locrian (b2, b3, b5, b6, b7)


Relative Minor

The relative minor of a key is the sixth note of that key.  
This scale will work over a minor, power, or minor 7th chord
of the same name (scale formula=1 2 b3 4 5 b6 b7 8, or Aeolian
Mode).  These are just the major scale relative minor.  More to 
come!
