I am working on an app that generates scales & chords and recently began work specifically on augmented chords.
It appears to me as though augmented chords are derived from the Lydian augmented scale. So my question is: Can other scales be augmented?
I ask this in an attempt to determine if augmented scales are a type or class of scale, or if the Lydian augmented is a specific instance.
Right now I could easily apply the augmented intervals (- W - W - W - W - H - W - H -) to other scales (e.g. Phrygian, Locrian), but unsure if this would be useful or make sense to do so?
