I think the misleading title of the "diatonic scales" template should be replaced by "modes of the major scale". The term diatonic is not well-defined in the sense that it is not clear whether it encompasses scales like the harmonic or the melodic minor. --Dkcycovery (talk) 05:36, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
- Some of us have thought that both diatonic and chromatic need special coverage, so we started up a new article: Diatonic and chromatic. Why not have a look, and join the discussion? Be ready to have comfortable assumptions challenged!

"Types" and "names"
What is the difference between the group of scales titled by type and those titled by "name"? For instance, why are the jazz scale and the blues scale in different groups? Hyacinth (talk) 22:24, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
