it sounds sorta japanese to me but im not sure...i really liek the way it sounds. Also, if i was to solo using this, what would be a good chord to play over? Minor/major dont seem to sound right...

It's just missing a 3rd and a 6th .. it's pentatonic by definition but I'm not sure how it would be named.

Add a b3 and a b6 and you'll have phrygian. Add a major 3 and a b6 and you'll have phrygian dominant.

Yea i know if i add notes i get a phrygian/lydian, but im talking about the scale without the missing notes. that is, if it actually has a name...

try playing Cmajor or Fmajor, or even Emajor (Or minor) but be careful with playing with the notes on that one

Google brings me this:

Japanese Pentatonic:
1 - 2 -b3 - 5 -b6 - 1
OR ["modal" version of 1st (5->1)]:
1 -b2 - 4 - 5 -b6 - 1 (this would be the one you have)

another site mentions it as the indian asavari raga

and somehow its a neutral scale, neith major nor minor because its missing the 3rd and the 7th
