    Question 'Exotic scales'

    Hey guys, this kinda follows on from my other thread. just wondering if you can list some useful 'exotic' scales intervals-eg 1 2 3 4 5 b6 7 is mixo, but if you could do it in this format that would be great!Hirajoshi, Phrgian dominant and Enigmatic would be good! Ive tried doing this but some websites give different examples.

    Thanks!

    Ben

    Hey... me again

    Hirajoshi is:
    1 - 2 - b3 - 5 - b6
    We have a thread in the Stricly forum about that scale.

    Phrygian dominant (fifth mode of the harmonic minor scale) is:
    1 - b2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - b6 - b7

    Enigmatic (refering to Satriani) is:
    1 - b2 - 3 - #4 - #5 - #6 - 7

    It is said it was invented by Verdi and used in Ave Maria (just got that info of the net)

    hey phantom. Thanks for being my Q+A person! Thats fantastic, exactly what i wanted. Thnakyou very much.

    If you have time, what instances may these scales be used in? Im presuming they have 'specialised' purposes.

    Thanks again,

    Ben

    Obi wan, check out the strictly hirajoshi thread where Eric explains the use of the scale and provides a backing track. I also posted a strictly called strictly melody which was based on Phryg Dom and took the elements of an article by Jorge Maldonado which you'll find on the articles section.

    These will help you out in understanding application of the scales.

    I once learnt an Egyptian scale

    I forgot it though >_<

    They can be pretty useful during improvisation though if you ever wanna do a culture shift. i liked MAB's little neo-classical section in Speed Lives. Makes me want to do a little section like that myself!
