I'm jamming a couple song ideas on guitar and I came across a fairly common chord progression. Gmaj, Dmaj, Amaj, with Amaj being the root chord, if you will.

The corresponding major scale that I'm playing goes as such:

e-5-3-2----------------------------
b-------5-3-2----------------------
g--------------4-2-0---------------
d--------------------4-2-0---------
a----------------------------4-2-0-

Is there a name for this scale? or is the G just considered an accidental in the major scale?

All of the notes are diatonic in D Major, your chord progression would be IV I V

I'd be surprised that the tomic was any other note but D. This is a common progression, and it has a very strong pull to D.

Hmmmmm, looks like you guys are right. Silly me. I was basing most of my improv around Amaj and Amin Pentatonic with a rock vibe to it. Thanks for answering my silly question!
