On the first point - actually I just wiki'd Bartok Scale, got redirected to that article, noticed the scale was already a subset of the ascending melodic minor, and realised I'd probably refer to it by reference to that.


That's pretty nifty, I never actually noticed the overtones spell Lydian Dominant anyway so it's good you brought it up. <3

The reason for not wanting to proliferate names has to do with the fact that I tend to view scales (and their various permutations) in a slightly mathematical sense. So, for example, with the major scale the initial interval pattern of TTSTTTS can be rotated to produce STTSTTT, TSTTSTT, and so on. Seeing as the initial pattern kind-of 'contains' the other patterns I tend to think "why name each permutation when you can just name the set?". This has quite a lot to do with (a) me being a bit anal, (b) reading quite a lot of stuff about permutations in music (Allen Forte's book "The Structure of Atonal Music" - I recommend it for anyone having trouble sleeping).


I sometimes wish music theory had been "assembled" more sensibly through the years and we had simpler ways to talk about this stuff in a hurry.

Me neither. It's a pretty neat idea for a scale. Even if it does equate the the melodic minor it has at least some basis in acoustic theory. Which is nice.

I know - it's a total arse isn't it? It's not helped by the fact that each broad type of music (classical / jazz / rock, pop, &c. / Indian / &c.) have different types of terminology for things that are mostly the same. 'Flat 9' (in a chord context), for example - it took me literally years to find out what that meant. When I realised I couldn't believe I already knew what it meant but just called it by a different name.

Ah well. At least it's not science. If it was science we'd have to do musical equations to prove each other wrong and that would be really difficult. I can't imagine trying to calculate the area under a chord progression.

Mind you I do wonder if that's all compositions are sometimes (I can almost hear Beethoven saying "Haydn says I can't do what?! Well screw him! I'm going to write 9 symphonies worth of proving him wrong ...")

I didn't watch the video initially because I thought it would just annoy me, but I just relented and you know what? I immediately wanted to punch that guy in the face, destroy his guitar, write all the scales on pieces of card, cram them up his ass and set fire to them. I honestly believe I'd have reacted more positively if he'd tried to impose himself on me sexually.

And may I be the first to say: SHIT MUZAC JAZZ MUST DIE.

Yeah! People could get seriously hurt or injured listening to that kind of stuff. Fortunately although I'm an amateur I have years of experience so I protected myself, but someone who's just starting out could easily die just by watching the first few seconds.

I've just realised it's got a long and weird backing track at the end, that'll be fun to noodle to!

I hesitate to call something a "solo" when it's not inside a cohesive piece of music.

That's strange. I was watching this for thirty seconds. I went to turn the volume up and only then realised the speakers were off. The music I'd been hearing was made completely made up by my brain. And it actually sounded better than the real thing.

Yeah, but you could have looped Johnny Rotten's fart from the end of "EMI" for 30 seconds and it would have sounded better.

Kudos to your brain though. I wish mine would make up music like that :/

Could be to do with my sleep pattern being messed up at the moment. Wish I could capture it. And wish I'd listened more closely to the music so I could've used it.

Yeah it's always incredibly tenuous when you get something like that isn't it?

It's like trying to catch the thoughts I have when I'm just falling asleep or just waking up or I've zoned out and I'm staring off into space - I feel like it should be possible to capture the thoughts, but it always just eludes me.
