I forgot to add the following to point 11:

This is not just a matter of identifying scales.  Dissonant tritones in the flow of a piece of music tell you a  lot about its harmonic sequences. They tend to appear  at nodal points in the harmony. Before such points, harmony tends to explore the current tonic scale without resolution. After them, one of two things is likely to occur, either resolution to the current tonic,  or change to a different tonic scale (a different kind of scale for the same tonic or the same kind of scale for a different tonic).
