Altered Scales

Building altered scales from altered chords:

  • 9’s – b9 there will also be a #9 in the scale and vice versa
  • 11’s – any alteration on the chord there will be a #11 in the scale
  • 13’s – b13 in the chord there will be no 5 in the scale
  • b9 implies #9
  • any alteration #11
  • b13 no 5

altered scales always have 2 9s in it- don’t call it a 2
