What?

The mode is called "Locrian". Learn some theory, modes are slightly different to scales.

It's the Locrian mode. That's it's name.


Aw man, I was beat to the short, blunt, non descriptive answer...

Oh well, its "locrian mode."

The scale name for the Locrian mode is the Locrian scale.

Over the vii chord in the midst of a progression, you'll be using the Locrian scale.

If you wanna jam over a half diminished chord for 16 bars then you'll be using the Locrian mode, and scale.

In other words: if you're playing for a group of aural masochists, locrian's your best friend

it's too late at night to worry about modes so just know it's the minor scale with a flattened 2nd and 4th and sounds god awful. i remember my old theory teacher playing each "mode" on the keyboard off C major (AP tests tend to have 1-2 questions with modal scales involved aurally, just to **** with the kids cause why not) and his face when he couldn't resolve on that C at the end of "b locrian" was cringed in a way i'll probably remember for the rest of my life.

It isn't locrian mode.
It is locrian scale.
locrian mode tells you which note will feel like home.
Locrian scale will tell you what notes are played.

Talking bou tme!?
THe one thing that I learned here is that modern modal music doesn't excist the same as it used to, that's why the term mode is incorrect nowadays.
Nowadays we should refer to scale with accidentals,ionian/dorian/phrygian/lydian/mixolydian/aeolian/locrian scale.

It's called the locrian mode and the formula is 1 b2 b3 4 b5 b6 b7. Was this what you were looking for?
