A couple more scales and then we move on to other things, I promise. But the subject of scales is just so cool. It is fun just fooling around with them in your head.
Howard says that scales are a hallmark of Richard Rodgers, pictured above. And sure enough!
In "The Blue Room" that scale shows up in the bridge: "We will drive on, keep alive on, just nothing but kisses..."
That is at about :42 in this stingy little preview video.
It is no accident Richard Rodgers wrote "Do Re Mi."
But "Do Re Mi" is another story.
