Scale of the Day: E Octave Subdivided: 2 just [2 just/2 just]
The E Octave Subdivided: 2 just [2 just/2 just] Scale. Take the octave, divide it into two just parts (that gives you the 3/2 just perfect fifth). Then divide the intervals on either side into two just parts. This gives you the 5/4 major third (to divide the 3/2 between the root and fifth) and the 7/4 minor seventh (the 7/6 of the 4/3 interval size found between the fifth and the octave). This scale happens to line up with the 4:5:6:7:8 of the overtone series - a supremely consonant seven chord.
