Diatonic scale

noun: a scale with eight notes in an octave; all but two are separated by whole tones

"When Nature, who weighs the mountains in scales and the hills in a balance, and number and names the stars, takes hold of this vibration-material, she subjects it to the most rigorous measurement in marshalling that series of notes which constitute The Musical System. She is in no hurry in giving us all her gifts in this matter. She first of all gives us the interval of an Octave at one stroke, and in generating the seven notes which compose the three chords of the Diatonic Scale she carries the process up through six octaves..." [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 19]

"The Diatonic scale, being called the "Natural scale," implied that the chromatic chords were consider to be artificial; but the notes of the chromatic chords, from their PROXIMITY to the notes of the tonic chord, fit to them like hand and glove." [Scientific Basis and Build of Music, page 51]
