Scale of the Day: G Sharp Dorian diminished 4
The G Sharp Dorian diminished 4 Scale as one would find it on any conventional, equal tempered instrument. The diminished 4th collapses the symmetry, leaving it and the perfect fifth as the only scale members without counter-balancing inversions. The equal tempered diminished fourth - being 400-cents just like the equal tempered major third - also introduces a nice major/minor ambiguity.
