At end of lessons today teacher showed me this scale and said was augmented 7 scale I think i get it but not 100% sure. Would G be the root and E the augmented 7 in this scale?

That's an E diminished 7 arpeggio.

EDIT: Nope, nope, E half-diminished 7.

E G Bb Db
1 b3 b5 bb7

...

NO! I fail.

It was an E diminished 7 arpeggio, DAMN IT!

This is a diminished 7th arpeggio. Whether you call it an E, G, Bb or Db diminished 7th arpeggio is contextual.

Ok my bad he did say diminished not augmented. I guess i dont quite understand it. Its like an E minor with a flatted fifth and double flatted 7th?

Take the major scale, C for instance.

C D E F G A B C

A triad is the First, Third, and Fifth of the root scale (root being C).

C E G

We say it's a diminished 7th chord because it has both the third and fifth flat, and the 7th (which is added from the root chord's scale) is double flatted.

C Eb Gb Bbb

So in E...

E F# G# A B C# D# E

E Major triad: E G# B

E diminished triad: E G Bb

E diminished 7th: E G Bb Db

I see... Thanks, it makes sense now. I could not figure out what was going with it. It had me all confused.
