I'm hoping you can enlighten me...
I am thinking of taking the Trinity classical grade 8 exam, and thought I would make a start on the scales etc.
Until now I have always taken Jazz exams, so some of the scales are different.

Here are my questions:
1) when this says "arpeggio", are we talking 1-3-5 only? ie for Bb major that would be Bb-D-F-Bb-D-F-Bb-D-F (and back down)? (ie there is no 7th involved...there was always a 7th in the Jazz exams!)

2) and am I right in believing the Melodic minor is formed by raising the 6th and 7th of the natural minor on the way up only, not on the way down; and the Harmonic minor is formed by raising the 7th only both up and down?

3) is the "dominant 7th in the key of Eb" : Bb-D-F-Ab ?; and the "dominant 7th in the key of F# major": C# E# G# B ?

thanks

I have got the ABRSM scales and arpeggios book dated 1995
So I don't know if the same applies to Trinity but for ABRSM:

1) and 2)
Yes

3) is the "dominant 7th in the key of Eb" : Bb-D-F-Ab ?; and the "dominant 7th in the key of F# major": C# E# G# B ?
Yes, but you also repeat the starting note at the top and then come back down.
So 1 octave dominant 7th in the key of Eb is Bb-D-F-Ab-Bb-Ab-F-D-Bb
2 octave dominant 7th in the key of Eb is Bb-D-F-Ab-Bb-D-F-Ab-Bb-Ab-F-D-Bb-Ab-F-D-Bb
