To call it the "hindu" scale is ridiculous at best.


I can see a few of you spent several years mastering the nuances of micro tonal instruments. Seems some of you may have also learned the 22 languages spoken in India such as संस्कृता वाक्, but the common idiom and vernacular labels elude you. Funny how people are.

For the rest of us who play the guitar, whose quest is simply add a quick exotic twist to our music, the Hindu scale is perfect. On an every day basis, we also don't go to Italy for Italian food, Greece for Greek, etc... Because like the Hindu scale, Chinese takeout is a good enough representation as is the common idiom to represent an idea.

For people like the original poster seeking answers not anal retentive nit picking:

Keep your chords as simple as possible. Also, you can gracefully intermix the Hindu scale with other scales, it does add a very nice, exotic sound to your playing just keep the cords simple at first as you learn.

you can get a snapshot of what notes make up different scales, including the "Hindu" scale. You don't need a towel on your head, a सितार, a masters in music, nor micro tones to use this scale, so ignore the arrogant replies.


Start simple with a major scale to work out a base sound you are looking for in chord progressions. Then you can begin to attempt to convert those major scales to sound good behind the "Hindu" scale. You'll have to rearrange or simplify some of the notes of major scale chords. You'll find the 6 & 7th notes are flattened in the "Hindu" scale so those are the notes you should focus on. Toy around with it until you find something that sounds nice to your ears, which is what 90% of guitar players worth their salt do anyway. Who cares if anyone other than you get's it, it is your music, your time, and your guitar so most importantly, have fun while you are doing it.

Start with the major triads & work them out. You should record your efforts so you know how you are coming along, that helps allot. Also, try here:

This is a perfectly valid question.
The chords played in a Mixolydian flat 6 scale (commonly referred to as the 'Hindu' scale) are as follows:
I major, ii° diminished, iii° diminished, iv minor, v minor, ♭VI+ augmented, ♭VII major.
In other words, if you were playing from the root A, the chords would be A major (or A7), B diminished, C# diminished, D minor, E minor, F augmented, and G major (or G7).
