The HINDU SCALE

I've gone through all the Greek Modes already, and Harmonic and Melodic, so now I'm going to start on the modes of melodic and harmonic minor.

First up is the HINDU SCALE, made from the intervals 1,2,3,4,5,b6,b7.

The Hindu scale is the 5th mode of Melodic Minor.

It's a beautiful mix of major and minor elements giving a cool eerie, mysterious and  slightly eastern feel I guess. All I can say is goof around with it yourself.

I do have a musical example for this one, nothing recorded recently, but this is a maybe 10 year old demo for a PORNOVURT song that never got played live more than two or three times.

Any how, the solo that start about 2/3 of the way through has a little Hindu section, well 2 Hindu sections. It starts out in E, there's some bends then the Hindu bit should stand out, then  it switches to A minor for a bit, then goes back to the section in E and repeats it with a few variations.



OK, dot time!
