So I was mucking about on guitar and misremembered the Phrygian mode, and played this series of notes.

R, b2, b3, 4, b5, b6, 7

And a slight variation:

R, b2, b3, 4, 5, b6, 7

I really like the way the minor tonality mixes with the natural 7th. >_>
...I like metal.

second is phrygian.

Phrygian with a natural 7th.

I'd say... the first is Locrian with a natural 7th.
And the second is Harmonic Minor with a b2.

You can't do too much (harmonically) with scales like these... at least I don't think you could, haven't tried though. Especially the first, given that the R is indeed the tonic. The second would be more of an alteration of the minor (the first could be too, but from what you've given that seems less likely).

The 2nd is a Phrygian - or it could be a Major played on the Mediant - ask Isaac

The 1st is just locrian with a natural 7,

There's no b7 in the second one.


Anyway, 1 b2 b3 4 5 b6 b7 1 ≠ 3 4 5 6 7 1 2 3

Also, 3 4 5 6 7 1 2 3 ≠ 1 b2 b3 4 5 b6 b7 1
