Tip #118 – Building a Hybrid Scale

Just like a hybrid-powered car, your scales can come from being a combination of two or more different scales.

A simple way to construct a hybrid scale is to take one-half of one scale, and combine it with one-half of the other.

So, for example; you can take the first half of the Phrygian scale and mix it with the second half of the Mixolydian scale.

Another way of constructing a hybrid scale is to take a known scale an alter certain notes by raising or lowering them.

Don’t be surprised either if your “hybrid scale” turns out to be an actually scale!
