I've been trying to figure out what this scale is, but I couldn't!!
So can you guys tell me what scale this is?

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


Sounds like a harmonic minor, but apparently it isn't.


Thanks,

Well, the notes are B, Eb, E, Gb, G, A, C and D,

It sounds Arabian or Spanish, in the way that it resolves on the D, because going to the upper octave B sounds strange. If you started on D, it sounds like a minor blues scale.

What song is it in?



Something I found cool while I was playing around the fretboard.
Also, the voices in my head told me to play it. O_O

B Phrygian Major.


I think this is it.

What scale is this? (also, guess that melody!)

G C Db B Bb Ab

Let's put that into a online scale generator and see what it's called...

It's the C herp derp scale!


Actually it's not, in the context (which I haven't given) the outlined harmony is C7 - Fm. The B is a chromatic lower auxiliary note.

Given no context, the scale you posted is E harmonic minor. That's why it's always important to include context in your post, otherwise you're going to get a sea of wrong answers.
