The principle of this book is not passing theoretical interest, but an effective guide to musical life and how non-diatonic synthetic scale formations can be expanded to the fullest extent. Over the years, I had been asked to write my two-octave and multi-octave synthetic scales book in conjunction with my "The Complete Thesaurus of Musical Scales." This work will lay out the structural guidelines of the synthetic scales and give some examples of how the derived lines can be used in a jazz context. This book is sending out my strong message that seemingly useless scales, listed in "The Complete Thesaurus of Musical Scales," can be injected readily into regular scale usages by building them with octave displacement of synthetic formations. Explore synthetic scale formations by finding your own formulae. Good luck!
