Scale Name Tradition: Ancient Greek

Names that come from ancient Greek, you know from Ptolemy and Pythagoras and folks like that.

Hey. These tradition pages are a big mess right now. If you look below you will see lots of chaos and duplication and misspellings. I'm working on a new organization scheme for scale names; when that's ready it will all look way better and everything will be accurate.

TL;DR Please ignore this page. Or, peruse it at your own peril.
