It's just a major scale with a b6 that makes it sound minor at the end.

As hydra said, it is just a major scale with a flat 6.

And although it is not on topic, I was in the middle of trying out a 12 tone cycle when I got that, with the root, 3, 5 and b6 note. And I found out that you can also add a flat 2nd to give it a melodic minor kind of overall feel to it.

Harmonic Major sounds about right.

What's harmonic about that scale now?

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.

TS, why do you need a name for it? It is what it is, how does a name help you at all?

It's obviously a clue
the treasure lies in Ethiopia - onwards!

That is the reason why you shouldn't play it. Well, more technically, the reason why you shouldn't say the name out loud.


Honestly, it's a major scale with a flat 6.
