You're welcome, seems the small hint wasn't noted , Google and a search here will come up with some answers.Colin B said:Grumpie, That is really helpful! Any chance of the same sort of thing for Minor scales and pentatonics etc? Really useful and MUCH appreciated!
Wow that was unneccessary.Colin B said:And my opinion is that I don't really care what your opinion is.
Agreed! I use circle of 5ths and 4ths. It really just depends on on how I feel that day. Its all memorization when it come to major and/minor scales I use the cycles, but for the new stuff ( octatonic, whole tone, all those modes...) I memorize the pattern and practice it until it becomes easy and I don't have to think about it.cleger said:I've never really been able to wrap my head around using those patterns for quickly coming up with scales. I have a cycle of 5ths showing the key signature for each key and the relative minor pasted to the wall in my practice room. After a couple of years of practice and internalizing the cycle of 5ths, it's pretty well second nature now to know the major and minor scales from memory.
I guess everyone has a different way of internalizing things.
In the interest of piling on, I think ssleb is owed an apology.
Here are a few linbks on constructing scales. Please take the time to check these out.JazzItUp said:Hello my fellow horn players! I am new here, and I am looking for a site where I can get free Alto and Tenor Saxophone major scales in all 12 keys.
IMHO, HUTMO has provided a particularly good link, because it discusses different kinds of minor scales, including Dorian. If you want to play jazz, you'll be getting aquainted with Dorian sooner or later. Even if not, both the natural and the harmonic minor are common, and even the melodic minor comes up (although not as often, I think.)HUTMO said:
