lilypond scales generator

I picked up my saxophone for the first time in a while last night and went along to a big band rehearsal. Very quickly discovered that I’ve forgotten most of my scales and that I need to do some practice.

Realised I didn’t feel like writing eight scales out in nine keys, and there had to be a better way, so I played around for a bit with lilypond and then hacked together a bit of Python to help generate my scales.

Anyway, I thought this was pretty neat, and possibly useful to others, so I’ve shoved it on github.
