I was messing around with diminished arpeggios just now and found an interesting scale that derives from harmonic minor:

b3, #4, b6


----------------------------0-1-4
----------------------0-1-4------
------------------1-2------------
------------1-2-3----------------
------0-2-3----------------------
0-1-4----------------------------


Kind of fun. If anyone else is as fascinated by this sort of thing as I am, let me know what you think.

And for those of you who might respond, "this is the oldest thing in the world, so an so did it back in 1645!"



- well, if so then great! Tell me about it and don't be a dickwad.

Hmm.. figured it probably existed already. The chances of "inventing" a new scale on a Monday morning playing my nylon string with a freakin' penny are slim.

I probably wouldn't write a whole piece in this scale, but it's good to know about for improvisation. I never thought about turning that fourth into another tritone before.

sounds like a klezmer scale. or rather, THE klezmer scale. as soon as i played it i realized it's the scale used in this song.
