Scales and Modes for Blues and Rock Guitar Lesson – Part One


  1. Marc

    The whole intervals in an octave are 6 whole steps. But that is not a scale or mode. That's just counting every whole step in an octave. A scale or mode contains a total of 5 whole and two half steps in some order. The actual order of the intervals depends on which degree or note you start on in the scale. The C Ionian scale (C scale starting on C) is WWHWWWH. C Dorian (C scale starting on D) is WHWWWHW. But notice it's always the same amount of W and H intervals regardless.
