Ok, so i've just started making some instrumental metal songs and i played a scale of some sort. It captured my immediate attention when i played it. Here is the scale in tab:

E|--------------------4--7--8---|
B|---------5--6--8--------------|
G|--5--6------------------------|
D|-------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------|

I'm not 100% sure but i think its C phrygian dominant with the major 7th instead of a minor 7th. Am i wrong?

PLEASE HELP ME!!!

You're right. It would be C phrygian dominant major 7

Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.

Otherwise known as a C Byzantine scale, or C double harmonic minor.
My Gear:
Gibson Faded Flying V
"Dante's Inferno" Iceman
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112
etc.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

Sure, if you want to actually look it up or if you've wasted a lot of time memorizing the technical names of scales. But in layman's terms, C phrygian dominant major 7 will suffice.
