Hi folks welcome to the 3rd part in my series "Unlocking your scales". This time we are focusing on playing through a scale using intervals. An interval is the distance from one note to the next - in music we use numbers to signify this. For example, in the major scale, our interval formula is R (can be called 1 or tonic) 2 3 4 5 6 7. In the key of C the 4 will be an F note because F is the 4th note up from the C root.
Here we are in A dorian and we start playing our scale in 4ths - so from A, the 4th note up an A dorian scale is D. Then we repeat the same leap from the 2nd note of A dorian, the note of B the 4th note up from B is E we then repeat from the 3rd note of A dorian, C and so on.
Later we perform the same thing with 6th intervals. It's possible to play scales in any interval, even octaves.
