SCALE5 romanian SCaLE (E)
Ukrainian Dorian, Dorian #4, Dorian #11, Lydadorian (4th mode of Harmonic minor) R-2-b3-#4-5-6-b7
Minor chord tonality Satie’s Gnossienne No 1 and No 3 (GT208 and GT242) This is the first of our ‘gapped’ scale; ‘gapped’ because it is a seven-note scale that includes an augmented 2nd (a three-fret leap), unusual in the context of the more even spacing of standard scales. This is a beautifully evocative scale that can work on a minor (or simpler) tonality. It blends the familiar (and eminently useful) Dorian mode with a Lydian mysticism due to the sharp #11.
