Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 2657 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:
Scale 211
Scale 211, Ian Ring Music Theory
3rd mode:
Scale 2153
Scale 2153, Ian Ring Music Theory
4th mode:
Scale 781
Scale 781, Ian Ring Music Theory
5th mode:
Scale 1219
Scale 1219, Ian Ring Music Theory


The prime form of this scale is Scale 203

The pentatonic modal family [2657, 211, 2153, 781, 1219] (Forte: 5-19) is the complement of the heptatonic modal family [719, 971, 1657, 2407, 2533, 3251, 3673] (Forte: 7-19)


The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 2657 is 203
