So, I just played around the guitar, trying to find a cool riff or scale to mess around with. 5 minutes of messing around I found something I need to know the details about.

So, here's a quick tab to let you know what I was playing:


E:|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B:|--------------------------------------------------------7--9--10--9--7---------------|
G:|-7----7--7--7--7----7----7--7----7--7--8--10----------------------10--8--7---|
D:|-0----0--0--0--0----0----0--0----0-------------------------------------------------|

(NOTE: Starting from D...)

Which scale does that belong to? I have tried to find out for a while now, but I just get stuck...

Anyone?

Since I'm assuming the root is E, it would be E phrygian.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

It's not E Phrygian, I'm quite sure.

I found out that I can use this pattern all the way up the fretboard (starting from F):

E:|-1-2-4-5-7-8-10-11-13-14-| ...and so on...

Come on! Someone has to know what this might be!

If you're tuned to D standard then it's D phrygian

Sorry about that, I misread your diagram.

E:|-1-2-4-5-7-8-10-11-13-14-| ...and so on...

That actually seems to be a diminished scale (half step - whole step)

Thanks! It seems to be correct. So in my case it's A Diminished (whole step)/B Diminished (half step).

Success!

No, your main riff in the original post is in D phrygian, it can't be any other key because the tonal centre is D and the pattern of intervals fits with Phrygian. The single note pattern in post 7 would therefore be D diminished...A and B don't come anywhere into the equation.

I checked out this page and cliked on "D" and "Phrygian", but it doesn't seem to match...

Your root can't be anything but D with you hammering that open D and the notes of D phrygian are D Eb F G A Bb C D

What about the F# and the G#? (you've mislabeled them on the b string; the notes are F# G# A on the b string)

Oh ffs...I just saw the bottom 2 notes and thought it was D standard.

Ts, next time put ALL the strings your tab, or at least specify which strings you've missed off.

It's a hybrid between D Locrian (or D blues) and D Phrygian dominant. You shouldn't try forming chords from the scale, but it could be good for metal riffing and soloing.

It seems to be D Half-Whole to me on first glance.

It could be that, and that's probably a better description than mine, though it lacks a C note.

I say it's just a good metal lick over a D5 chord.
