I feel like I'm being lazy but here goes. I was playing around one day and it turned out really nice for me, I just wanna know what this scale is:

X Note-Semitone-Tone-Tone-Tone-Semitone-Tone-Octave

I first played this in G so here is the notes:

G, Ab, Bb, C#, Eb, E, F#, G

Thanks in advance! and if anyone could point me to a site dedicated to this type of thing (ie a site that'll take my scale and tell me if it's original or if there's a name). Oh and all-guitar-chords.com is no help this time heh.

Looks like a G Diminished scale with a major second instead of a minor second and missing a fourth, maybe?

G, A, Bb, C, C#, Eb, E, F#, G

It fits octatonic for the first three notes but then goes off. I was going to say Phrygian but that doesn't seem right either. I'm very rusty on modes. I never learned them very well.

I'm still on the "importance of the major scale" level in terms of knowing my scales. I know the minor scale and the Lydian mode pretty dang well as it's my favorite so far and I know the blues scale...otherwise, every scale I've played around with was pretty weird like this. Wish I could help you guys out more with my thingy haha

Your notes don't match the pattern you have listed. The W- h thing is straight up phrgian, but the notes listed are different.

Sorry guise, I was hoping I didn't muck it up heh. This guy has it right, I just played it out on my guitar and it came out this way

So thanks, it is definitely a Phrygian mode. I'm gonna go look more into it.

there was a dude that used to c+p my old posts about how stupid modes are

i'm an asshole though so people always stuck to talking about me behind my back or ignoring me, whereas crazysam had a weird picture of his face as his avatar and was very gullible so people ganged up on him a lot

myself included

It's the 4th mode of Db major pentatonic with a tritone stuck in there.
