The Harmonic Minor isn't named so because the 6th has some special harmonic property. It's called that because it shows up primarily when harmonizing the dominant in a minor scale.

It was a joke.

Who cares about what the scale is called? Does it really matter? It has a lot to do with the chords you are playing over. The chords are more important and I bet the b6 is there because of the chords you are playing over.

The right answer is major scale with a b6.

Ionian(b6) could be a concise derivative name for this.

It is true that "names get in the way" and it's hard to retrace any existing HISTORICAL / FORMAL names for this.

Assuming there weren't any typographical errors, the closest match I found was
"Ethiopian Scale" from http://www.apassion4jazz.net/scales2.html.

The above source should have been sufficient however complications occur due to the discrepancies in the Ethiopian scale formulas when you look up other sources:

Ethiopian Scale = 1-2-b3-4-5-b6-b7 [= Aeolian]
source: http://www.ehow.com/how_4457553_pla...ale-guitar.html
source: Guitar Pro Scale database

Ethiopian Scale = 1-2-b3-4-5-b6-b7 [ascending] / 1-2-3-4-5-b6-7 [descending only]
source: http://www.medianmusic.com/ScaleForeign.html

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Also, a relative mode of this scale was used in Bartok's Mikrokosmos: No 10.

An augmented vi chord is harmonic as fuck, man.

And so with the harmonized scale...

*Dm7b5-Ddim7
*Em7-Eaug-E7-E7b9-E/G#
*Fm-Fm6-FmM7-Fdim7-FmM7b5
