Scale formation is how to make a scale. or maybe the formual for a certain scale?
Diatonic chords are built off the notes in the scale, without altering them
take C Major
C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C
the diatonic chords for C major are
C maj = C, E, G
Dmin = D, F, A
Emin= E,G, B
FMaj= F, A, C
GMaj= G, B, D
Amin= A, C,E
Bdim= B, D, F
