Do intervals only work for that major scale? Could I apply the same theory to the minor pentatonic lets say?

Thanks.

yes, every scale is made of intervals, the only difference being the distance between some of the notes

I have another question. Lets say I use the notes D F# B. Would I take the D major scale which is D E F# G A B C# D and say the formula is 1 3 6. Then how would you name this chord? Thanks.

D6 without a 5

1-3-5-6 = D6
1-3-6 = no 5

This might help

^At first glance, that would probably be called Bm.


[B]B[/B] - C# - [B]D#[/B] - E - [B]F#[/B] - G# - A# - B

1 - B.
b3 - D.
5 - F#.

So how do I know which scale to reference from? Because If i referenced from Bmajor scale then it would be a B minor chord. But if i referenced from D then it would be some 1 3 6 formula...

^You'd name it according to where it's placed in a chord progression and the chords surrounding it. A thing we call context.

Edit: Missed your question..

And then pick your scale accordingly.

What I just want to play around with one chord. Then its up for interpretation?

^Yes, call it what you will.

I guess, you could go with the bass note. If the B was in the bass you could straight out call it Bmin, but if the D was in the bass, you could call it a Bmin inversion, or take D as the root and say D6.

It's hard to give it a solid name without a function... so in that case, take the order of the notes in pitch, and name it accordingly.

Im very sorry I got one more example. Let say the notes c# d f#. Then from lowest pitch id reference the C# major scale. So C# D# E# F# G# A# B# C#. Then it would be 1 b2 4. What are its possible names? thanks.

^Anytime I encounter something like that.. (1 - b2 - 4... 1 - 2 - 4 - 5 etc).. something that looks horrible, I look for alternatives.

The notes C# - D - F# make Dmaj7.

The same would apply to 1 - 2 - 4 - 5 (Take C Major... C - D - F - G).. at first glance you'd think.. 'Er.. Csus2sus4?' which isn't really practical, and you won't see anything called that... another quick glance and you see Dm11 which is a lot nice and more practical.

Don't always assume the lowest note in the chord is the root.

Haha, your that guy. Alright

Alright great. I just finished making some reference sheets for guitar for me to take in my guitar case.
