Now that we’ve learned the diminished scale, the whole tone scale, and the altered scale, it would be beneficial to practice them all side by side. Play a V7(#9) chord and run the diminished scale, then play a V7(#5) chord and run the whole tone scale, then play a V7(#9#5) chord and run the altered scale. It’s important to have the distinction between these three scales both under your fingers and in your ears. ... Read More
