Music Theory: Eight (8) Tone Dominant Scale

The Eight (8) Tone Dominant Scale is an qui-distant scale. Meaning the pattern of the notes in this scale is one Half Step followed by one Whole Step over and over. This scale can be used with the Dominant 7/#9 and Dominant 7/b9 chords. This scale's cousin, the Eight (8) Tone Diminished Scale has the same construct, except it begins with a Whole Step followed by a Half Step, the opposite of the Eight (8) Tone Dominant Scale.
