/ software / scales study

Hi, this is a small app to study and play with musical scales. To start, select a scale type below:

Next, click a note on the keyboard to set it as the root note of the scale.

Great! Now you can see the notes in that scale. Here’s a color key

1. tonic
2. supertonic
3. mediant
4. subdominant
5. dominant
6. submediant
7. heading

The leftmost letter shown is the tuning of the string. You can change the tuning of all strings by selecting an instrument below. You can also change the tuning of an individual string by alt + clicking on the note you would like the string to be tuned to.
