I was writing a song with chords that didn't quite fit a major or minor scale so instead of looking for a specific scale to fit the chords, I just played notes that ended up fitting the song. I'm not sure whether I made this scale up or if it already exists.

Can someone tell me if this exists?:


e|----------------------------------------------0---4---|
B|-------------------------------------0---3------------|
G|----------------------------1---2---------------------|
D|-------------------0---2------------------------------|
A|----------0---2---------------------------------------|
E|-0---4------------------------------------------------|


Thanks!

It sounds pretty familiar to me, so I guess it already exists, although I don't know the name of this scale.

The notes are:

E G# A B D E G# A B C# E G#

Re-aranged:

A B C# D E G#

Fill in the gaps:

A B C# D E (F#) G# A

Which is the A major scale.

Edit:
Sorry, there's no C# but the G# (and the lack of a C natural) implies that the scale also has a C#.

Actually the notes are:

There is no A# which means it is not an A Major Scale.

Thanks anyway though!

Since when has the A major scale an A#???

Indeed, since never because there isn't one ^^

You probably meant C#...

The A major scale has no A# in it;

Over what kind of chord or bass note do you use the notes.

IT would provide us with far more usable information.

A recording would be even better, so I can hear which notes you accent the most.

it look like E Mixolydian like if E is the tonal centre.

This is the relative of A Major, and those outside notes are just considered accidentals.

Agreed with him, its an E mixolydian (assuming E is the tonic since thats what you started at) missing a 2nd and 6th, so just add those and you'll have an E mixolydian, other wise you have some sort of pentatonic scale.
