Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 327 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 2211 | Raga Gauri | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 3153 | |||||

4th mode: Scale 453 | |||||

5th mode: Scale 1137 |

This is the prime form of this scale.

The pentatonic modal family [327, 2211, 3153, 453, 1137] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [471, 1479, 1821, 2283, 2787, 3189, 3441]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 327 is 3153

Scale 3153 |

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.
