Borrowed Chords

When loading up a chord set, how can I tell which scale the borrowed chords in the set are from?

Hi @jam_sandwich,

It is quite hard to tell exactly which scale it is borrowed from as there are multiple right answers, but Scaler can help you identify the possible scales:

  • Right-click on any chord and navigate to “Explore scales” which lists all the scales a chord belongs to.

  • You can select multiple chords in the chord set, right-click then “Explore Common Scales” which will list the scales both chords belong to.

I love this feature of Scaler and think it’s a hidden gem - perfect for finding modulations!!!

Thanks for the reply.
