I wrote a riff that could be in one of three scales: G Japanese (Ichikosucho), A Bebop Minor, or D Bebop Dominant. Unfortunately, the root note (or what I'd want the root note to be for the song) is an E, which would make the scale: E, F#, G, A, B, C, C#, D. I can't find any scales with these scale degrees. Help?
Have I discovered a secret scale? Should I stick with the others? Am I over-thinking this WAY too much? Any tips would be appreciated.
Thanks!

It's just an Emin with an added b7.

I don't think that scale has a name exactly, but it's essentially an E natural minor with a passing C#.

EDIT: ^^Evening Crow, the D in TS's scale is the b7. Because it's an 8 tone scale it would be better to call it the #6.

Thanks, wasn't really sure what to call it... Anyway, seems like we agree on it being an Emin with an added note. I'm guessing ts mainly plays it either in a chromatic kind of way (passing note) or skips it either when ascending or descending.

Yeah I'd say that's what's going on Hope that helps, TS!

It's E minor with a passing C#, the C# in place of the C would make it E dorian (1-2-b3-4-5-6-b7), it's a fairly common passing tone.
