Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 1189 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 1321 | Blues Minor | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 677 | Scottish Pentatonic | ||||

4th mode: Scale 1193 | Minor Pentatonic | ||||

5th mode: Scale 661 | Major Pentatonic | This is the prime mode |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 661

Scale 661 | Major Pentatonic |

The pentatonic modal family [1189, 1321, 677, 1193, 661] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [1387, 1451, 1453, 1709, 1717, 2741, 2773]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 1189 is itself, because it is a palindromic scale!
