This Jazz Piano Tutorial is about the Augmented Scale.
The Augmented Scale is just two augmented chords superimposed over each other.
The Augmented Scale is:
– a Hexatonic Scale (6 notes)
– a Symmetrical Scale (repeating intervals)
– Also knows as the minor-third half-step scale (because that is the intervals within between the notes in the scale)
Because the Augmented Scale is symmetrical, there are only 4 unique Augmented Scales (i.e. the C Augmented Scale contains all the same notes as the E and Ab Augmented Scales)
And also, much like the Diminished Scale, you can create a ‘mode’ of the Augmented Scale by just starting on a different note. So for example, C minor-third half-step scale contains all the same notes as Eb half-step minor-third scale.
The Augmented Scale can also be thought of as three major triads superimposed over each other (C, E & Ab Major Triads).
