Scale of the Day: E Flat 5, 3 Ionian
The E Flat 5, 3 Ionian Scale. With its pristine 5/4 just major third, the profoundly consonant 4/5/6 just major triad at root position, and the 4/3 just perfect fourth as its only utonal member this 5-limit Ionian scale is possibly the ideal tuning of the classical "major" scale. A substantially significant scale and a good place to start exploring the sound of just intonation.
