Scale of the Day: E Pythagorean Lydian no 5
The E Pythagorean Lydian no 5 Scale. As the Pythagorean Lydian scale is normally made up exclusively of a tonic and all utonal member pitches, the loss of the 3/2 perfect fifth has little effect on the overall "brightness" of this harmonic shade. But it does take away a key tonal gravitational center - particularly for the 729/512 augmented fourth as it will now drift toward resolving to the 81/64 major third.
