Scale of the Day: F Sharp Octotonic-1 (2 - 1)


The F Sharp Octotonic-1 (2 - 1) Scale as one would find it on any conventionally tuned, equal tempered instrument. The flattened second adds a nice chain of major seconds from the 2, 3, 4 scale degrees (and conversely, a chain of minor seconds from the 8, 9(1), 10(2) degrees) that breaks up the usual alternating major/minor seconds of the octotonic scale.
