Thread Name: Freygish Scale?
Subject: RE: Freygish Scale?
My understanding of the Freygish is limited to some cursory jazz knowledge, but it's not really the same as the Phrygian mode, is it?

Somewhere in it there is an augmented interval, the third maybe, and it makes for a lovely sound.

In other words the Phrygian intervals are H-W-W-W-H-W-W, whereby the Freygish intervals are H-W1/2-H-W-H-W-W. H=half step or semi-tone, W=whole step or tone.

Or am I messed up?

Peace, Mooh.
