Augmented Scales

The Augmented Scale (a.k.a. Symmetrical Augmented Scale) consists of six notes and therefore belongs to the category of hexatonic scales. The name of the scale is based on the fact that it is built upon two augmented chords. In the C Augmented Scale this would be C - E - G# (Caug) and Eb - G - B (Ebaug).

This scale should not be confused with Whole Tone Scale or Lydian Augmented with the semi-notes pattern 2 - 2 - 2 - 2 - 1 - 2 - 1.
