Scale of the Day: G Ionian minor 2, no 5
The G Ionian minor 2, no 5 Scale as one would find it on any conventionally tuned, equal tempered instrument. For ears more accustomed to the familiar major/minor seconds of "church modes," this scale adds a twist with the augmented third between the minor second and major third, and major third between the perfect fourth and major sixth. The missing fifth degree makes resolutions to the tonic triad an interesting proposition.
