This has been really bugging me and I can't find any websites that have this scale if this is actually the name of it.

Key: D#

|---------------------------------------------------------6--8--9--|
|----------------------------------------------6--8--9-------------|
|-----------------------------------5--6--8------------------------|
|------------------------5--6--8-----------------------------------|
|-------------4--6--8----------------------------------------------|
|--4--6--8---------------------------------------------------------|

I was told it is a '13th Arpeggio' scale but I would like to know if this is the real name or if there is a different one. :P

P.S. I realized all you needed was for me to say "D#, F, G, G#, A#, C, C#" but this is incase anyone new to guitar would like to learn a new cool scale. <<;

P.S.S. I do realize G Major has the exact same notes. o _o; If it sounds too much like G#, start on string 5, fret 6 (D#). :P

Hmm, yes, didn't see that. Sounds right. Thanks, problem solved. =D

Mixolydian is whole, whole, half, whole, whole, half - correct?

And sharp is for rising, flat for falling - musically anyway, but it doesn't necessisarily matter (IMO). :P

Yeah, it's D# Mixolydian and the notes are D#,E#,F##,G#,A#,B#,C#.

if that is in the key of D#, then i think it would be classes as D#Mixolydian.

The G# Major scales 5th mode.

Is there any reason it is D# as a pose to Eb?

just wondering, i'm not too good with enharmonics, although it could also be Eb Mixo

The key of D# is totally different to the key of Eb. (D#, E#, F##, G#, A#, B#, C## and Eb, F, G, Ab, Bb, C, D) which would make any scale based off of D# or Eb totally different.


Edit: sorry for double post i saw his question after i posted.

its the same notes as

|--------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------3--4-------------------------|
|-------------------3--5--------------------------------|
|--------3--5--6---------------------------------------|
|----6--------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------|

if you would've taken the time to find a different scale shape, you might have not needed to ask here....

Edit: not thinking, i thought it was mixolydian too. but as i look at it. Its just a D# Major...lol

smooth goin on this one...

The notes are enharmonic but by the intervals that make up the D# Mixolydian scale you're totally wrong.

With what you're saying G is the 3rd note of D# major when it is really F##, and you also say F is the 2nd when it is E#. (they're enharmonic but still different because of the intervals)

Its an Ab Major scale. 3 note per string version. or if you start on the Eb, its Eb Mixolydian.
#12
NO NO NO NO

Mixolydian is whole, half, half, whole, half, half, whole

This is a D# MAJOR scale

Properly writtin it sould be D#, E#, F##, G#, A#, B#, C#, D#

hehe, well thats cool, but its just your standard 3 note per string major scale built on Ab.

Or if you want to start on the Eb, its Eb Mixolydian.

There is no reason to complicate it by thinking of it in a non standard key like G# (D# mixo).

Sometimes the best answer is the simplest one.

3 flats vs 8 #'s

for all practical purposes, the key of G# doesnt exist (Im not talking theoretically... but actual use).

if you really want to look at it as D# Major, then you would need a C##. The C# is the b7 to the D#, making it a D# mixolydian scale

Again, looking at it in Ab (Eb mixo), is much more practical. you probably wouldnt have made the mistake about the 7th if you didnt have to deal with all those #'s.

B# = C
E# = F
F## = G

Enharmonically, of course.
