These lessons focus on the three main scales of classic action music: octatonic, hexatonic, and Hungarian minor. Learn how to extract sophisticated action writing from them with easy-to-understand techniques. Lesson 4 builds a vocabulary of common chords from hexatonic and Hungarian minor scales. Lesson 5 then demonstrates how scales play an important part in the planing of chords. And Lesson 6 reveals common ways of mixing the action scales together, either one after the other or even at the same time!

Note: While the Octatonic course is not required to take this course, it is recommended as some aspects of the Hexatonic course build on the Octatonic course.
