Phyrgian mode, natural and melodic minor, Harmnoic Minor would be a few of the more common ones I think.

What about the Bartok scale?


You mean the Overtone scale? A Lydian scale with a minor 7th? ... yes that too.

^ ooooh. Bonus points if you can PM why those notes.

More to the point, TS, scales don't really work the way you think they do. Check the theory guides in my sig.



Lydian dominant you mean?

Because so it works over a Dominant chord, but that's the Jazz usage of it, don't' know the classical function

TBH I'm just naming random scales off of Guitar Pro, I have no idea.

Excuse me while I take off the gloves here for a second.

Basically, there isn't really a "Bartok scale". However, he did use many synthetic scales that have clear and elegant derivations. Three which come to mind (from his Concerto For Orchestra, which I studied in depth in A level music) -

H-WH scale, sometimes called the augmented scale.
H-WWH scale (semitone, fourth) - pretty easy and cool to run around on guitar with.
Overtone scale - 1 2 3 #4 5 6 b7 - so named because this is the first 7 notes you find in the harmonic overtones, although they don't occur in the order 1 2 3... etc. - http://www.music.sc.edu/fs/bain/atmi02/hs/index-audio.html
