Scale of the Day: F Ionian no 5 1% wide


The F Ionian no 5 1% wide Scale. Take an F "major" scale, drop the fifth degree, and detune everything outward for 1212-cent octaves. The E diminished triad substitutes nicely for the dominant C7 chord that is no longer possible without the "C" while the 1% extra width adds an edgy, out-of-tune quality not unlike the sound of neglected pianos found in churches and community centers.
