Scale of the Day: B Dorian no 4 diminished 5


The B Dorian no 4 diminished 5 Scale as one would find it on any conventionally tuned, equal tempered instrument. The combination of subtraction and alteration places a consecutive sequence of 300-cent adjacent scale tones in the middle of this scale (between the minor third, diminished fifth and major sixth), which comes off sounding like a diminished triad within this equal tempered context.
