Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 1109 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

The prime form of this scale is Scale 341

Scale 341 |

The pentatonic modal family [1109, 1301, 1349, 1361, 341] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [1367, 1373, 1397, 1493, 1877, 2731, 3413]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 1109 is 1349

Scale 1349 |

These are other scales that are similar to this one, created by adding a tone, removing a tone, or moving one note up or down a semitone.
