I asked my guitar teacher that and he taught me a Spanish Gypsy/Jewish scale or something.. Play an Am, G, F, E, progession, and use A natural minor for everything except for the E, where you throw in the Spanish Gypsy/Jewish scale. Very cool souding smile.gif

I've been having alot of fun with this pentatoinic scale lately.

In E

E, F, A, B, D.

Don't know what it's called, but it's got kind of a dark eastern sound.

Actually it is a penta scale because it only has five tones in it, and I think that it is a japanese scale if I'm not mistaken. I could be wrong but i think it is! If I am mistaken about the japanese thing some one here should know!

Peace!! cool.gif

Seeing how I am more awake, that scale is just penta that sitts in c major, but when you take out the root and fifth and start on the major third it is called... it's called... Trying to go back to my theory that I never use anymore, I'm sorry I can't remember the name of it. Some one from this group has to know.
Sorry!

Peace!! cool.gif

But it is a pentatonic scale
