I'm looking for a scale that sounds eastern. An example would be the scale used in the Rolling Stones song "Gomper" another example would be Country Joe & The Fish's "Eastern Jam" . could anyone tell me the name of this scale? thanks

The harmonic minor scale is pretty eastern, with that #6 b7 deal

I hope that we could get some real metal out there. I guess A7X a start...
But nu metal does have its moments like Slipknot Mushroomhead and Korn.

e phrygian, and a harmonic minor, me thinks.
I'm back. No-one knew I left anyway. Do you even know who I am?
  • Harmonic Minor.
  • Spanish Gypsy.
  • Hungarian Minor.
  • Hungarian Gypsy.
  • Persian.
  • Egyptian.
  • Oriental.
  • Chinese. ('Country Pentatonic')

Try some of those along with a bit of rubato.
