Scale Name Tradition: Western

If it's in this list, then you might have learned this scale name if you were studying theory with Liszt or Mozart, or it's a modern name derived from older western names like Mixolydian or Phrygian.

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.
