i made up this pretty cool sounding riff and i want to try to make a song around it but first i was wondering if anyone could tell me if this comes from a particular scale or if its more of less random. it kinda seems random to me cause i dont know much about scales but if it does fit in somewhere that will give me a direction to go with the song. id appreciate it if someone could help me identify what scale this is and maybe some others that could go good with it.
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------15----------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------12-----14---------14----|
D|-7-------9---8---5-------7--------9----12---11-------7--------9----12---------------------------9--|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----7--------------------------7------------------------------7-------------------------------------------|

I see it as a mixture between B harmonic minor and B natural minor.

hmm, this is kind of beside the point but... i was checking out those 2 scales and i agree that looks to be it but how is it in B when it doesnt start or end on B?

-Because it doesn't have to start nor end on B, as long as it contains the notes which belongs to a particular scale.

Since it starts on A even though it's based off scales in B, you can use the A Locrian mode if you put a m7b5 chord in the backing as well.
