Scale of the Day: E Octave divided into 2 Just Parts
The E Octave divided into 2 Just Parts Scale. Scales don't get much simpler than this. Two notes that happen to match the distance between the second and third partials of the harmonic series. With the octave, these three notes line up with the 2:3:4 of the overtone series. This is a profoundly consonant open fifth.
