https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_musical_scales_and_modes

In the wikipedia page it shows them all in the key of C but i've been wanting to list them like:

"C Major - C D E F G A B"

But not just the major scale but all scales/modes. something like:

Enigmatic scale.

"C Enigmatic - C Db D E F# F G# G A# A B C"

Apologize if I read the sheet music wrong, not every good at reading it.

So yeah let me reiterate my question.

Is there a list/book/paper/resource that displays all scales that ever existed in music and in every key while also being in the format as I displayed above?

  • Your ascending enigmatic scale has some descending intervals, e.g. F# F, G# G and A# A. Is that deliberate? I expect the intervals in a scale to be all ascending, or all descending, not a mixture. – Brian THOMAS Jul 21 '17 at 12:13
  • @BrianTHOMAS It was just how I read the sheet on Wikipedia it would show the scale in C for the enigmatic scale. I thought it to be strange as well, never seen anything like it, then again I never heard of the enigmatic scale either. – user3183207 Jul 21 '17 at 12:22

We try to avoid questions seeking external resources, because external links are subject to rot. There might be a way to rephrase the question so that you're asking for the information itself instead of a resource containing the information.

Google for Nicolas Slonimsky - Thesaurus of Scales And Melodic Patterns. It probably doesn't list every possible scale, but it should get you started.
