Scales and Chords in All Keys
By Ferdinand Schultz / ed. Willard A. Palmer
Alfred Masterwork Edition
Early Intermediate / Intermediate
Written in the latter part of the 19th century, this volume remains one of the most useful books of scales and arpeggios. Palmer's fine edition discusses the construction of scales from tetrachords and the Circle of Fifths as preparatory material to a presentation of all the major and minor scales and their cadences. The chromatic scale and suggestions for practicing scales in varied rhythms conclude the work.
