Anybody every used this Egyptian sounding scale?
C C# E F G G# A# C
Mr. Google tells me that this scale has a name: "Vakulabharanam"
I stumbled upon it playing my banjo, attempting to ape a funny belly-dancing tune.
It sounds kind of vaguely minor, even though it has a major third, but I don't think it can actually be categorized as either major or minor.
Sounds real nice on plectrum banjo because you can play it over droning open C and G strings, and its fun to fool around with.
I live in a little tourist town called Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario, Canada, which is about twenty miles north of Niagara Falls.
If you are ever planning on visiting the beautiful Niagara area, feel free to PM me and perhaps we can get together and do some jamming.
