Comprehensive Scale Catalog: Five-Tone Scales in Equal Temperament

This page is part of Flutopedia's Comprehensive Scale Catalog ... a listing of many (many) scales that can be played on Native American flutes.

This page shows only scales with five tones per octave and using 12-tone Equal Temperament.

Note that not all five-tone scales are listed on this page. The next page in this sequence of web pages provides Pattern Scales. These scales do not have a name or designation that I could location, but the pattern of notes does provide an interesting and potentially useful scale.

The root note of each scale is shown in blue, such as Finger diagram closed closed closed closed closed closed.
