    All those scales, and most people won't know what to do with any of them. Like cable TV- 200 channels, and nothin' on...

    Just a point of interest.

    Diatonic scales and modes are made up of 3 basic patterns:

    Wholetone - Halftone
    Halftone - Wholetone
    Wholetone - Wholetone

    The Bass Grimoire has more scales than you'll ever need. Best book I've come across for scales at least.

  9. Meh, can't say that's true for me- I like learning weird stuff like this, it allows me to explore and incorporate new elements. Besides, I love middle eastern music, and these scales are AWESOME.
