Too cool. Maybe someday *sigh*................

There is an oriental mode?

Why not? :) for example this mode called "Agava Raba". Birthplace of this scale is Israel. Israel is the Middle East. Has the Middle East any relevance to the "Orient"? I should say "yes".

Sure. And let's not forget that our much-beloved "blues scale" evolvd from an African pentatonic mode.


Big-time fun for no money: Learn one of these non-Western scales, and when it's your turn to solo in a blues tune, make that scale the basis of your solo. Any "blues nazis" in the room will lose their minds. :D
