Prime

The prime form of this scale is Scale 295

Scale 295Scale 295, Ian Ring Music Theory

Negative

The pentatonic modal family [3217, 457, 569, 583, 2339] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [439, 1763, 1819, 2267, 2929, 2957, 3181]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 3217 is 295
