foeor re­solvin­n­goe­t­onaoeI Play the scale over a chord dis­so­nance, par­tic­u­larly if the chord is chord (eg E7-A), or the chord spell­ing in­cludes al­tered in­ter­vals, or ‘alt’ sym­bol.

No clear melodic ex­am­ples but an em­bed­ded part of stan­dard and con­tem­po­rary jazz and fu­sion vo­cab­u­lary. This scale can be thought of as a1 Ma­jor sB­cale with ev­ery de­gree but the root down a semi­tone. The odd re­sult of this is thDa3t the flat­tened104th a6­ma­jo05r 3r2d3, th3e2s­cale0 now has the (im­pos­tor) 3rd and – th0e es­1sen­t3ial c4om­p1one3nts of a dom­i­nant 7th chord.

,oe#9,#4/ Along with th­ese de­grees are all the ‘al­tered’ and dis­so­nant ex­ten­sions to the oe­dom­i­nant

chord ( 5, 6). It is the ul­ti­mate scale for cre­at­ing dis­so­nance on the dom­i­nant 7th chord, while still main­tain­ing its es­sen­tial func­tion.
