I'm sure every configuration of western tones has been named something. Does anyone know this one (similar to hungarian minor)?

absolutely. a pentatonic scale is real, right? it's technically an augmented 2nd in this case. but a scale can have any arrangement of notes over any number of octaves.
thanks seraphine! i guess it be considered that with an omission. i wonder though, if it already has a name as is...It's very close to an Arabian scale...
Sure - harmonic minor and its modes all have that three-semitone interval (flat 6 to natural 7 in harmonic minor), though this particular scale is not a harmonic minor mode. No idea what you'd call it, or where it might be useful other than perhaps over a fully diminished chord (#4 standing in for b5).
I meant that I don't see an obvious chord for which it is an appropriate choice as a scale for soloing. Compositionally, of course, all bets are off.it's useful wherever you make it useful! what kind of question is that? hahaha...
been reading persichetti's book 'twentieth century harmony'. has a great chapter on scales that is very freeing.
I suppose you could use the second mode over altered dominants...I meant that I don't see an obvious chord for which it is an appropriate choice as a scale for soloing. Compositionally, of course, all bets are off.
Thanks for the Persichetti reference! I'll get that from my library.
... with A... I'm doing Am-C-F7-F9I suppose you could use the second mode over altered dominants...
Yeah, that persichetti book is really great. It's not a jazz book but I see no reason why these ideas can't be applied in the jazz context (and probably already are...).
It's a mode of Romanian MajorI'm sure every configuration of western tones has been named something. Does anyone know this one (similar to hungarian minor)?
I almost googled 'romanian major'. hahaha. (yeah, i don't like those 'ethnic' names. eg the oriental scale...)It's a mode of Romanian Major
Petrushka chord with an extra piece of chicken maybe. . . That's probably the meat of it functionally, huh? Triads a tri-tone apart, right?
Yeah, I was thinking "mode of Jeth's", but maybe I've got it wrong.Actually, I was wrong about it being Jeth's mode starting on the 3rd scale degree. I'm not sure I see them being the same collection of notes.
Semi tones. From your 1 to 2 would be my first "2", then from your 2 to b3 would be "1", from your b3 to #4 would be "3" etc.I'm haven't seen that scale notation. How does it work?
My scale as compared to a major scale is 1 2 b3 #4 #5 6 7 or using set notation 0, 2, 3, 6, 8, 9, 11. Thanks!
Ah, of course! Yup, 2 1 3 2 1 2 1 is right. So it is in fact different from Jeth's mode (which I'll have to check out...)Semi tones. From your 1 to 2 would be my first "2", then from your 2 to b3 would be "1", from your b3 to #4 would be "3" etc.
Distance in semi-tones, right?
that's right! interesting... IIRC takemitsu uses two pentatonic scales with roots a tritone apart for 'a flock descends into the pentagonal garden'. another good example...think kimock's onto something.... if the scale is in C then it contains DF#A and AbCEb , throw in the B and voila. Those darn triad pairs sneak in again , and the classic triads @ tritone too!!
