What scale is this?
Can anyone tell me what scale the following notes fall within?
Ab Bb C D E F#
That looks to be a whole tone scale since the interval between each tone is a whole step. Whole tone scales are interesting because there are only 6 notes and only two possible scales or keys:
Here's the scale you posted: --vextab options space=20 tabstave notation=true tablature=false key=C notes A@-B@/4 C-D-E-F#/5 options space=25 --vextab
Here's the other possible whole tone scale: --vextab options space=20 tabstave notation=true tablature=false key=C notes A-B/4 C#-D#-F-G/5 options space=25 --vextab
Whole tone scales are mostly used in jazz and other types of improvisation. Hope that helps!
