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
Scale 2211: Raga Gauri, Ian Ring Music TheoryRaga Gauri
3rd mode:
Scale 3153
Scale 3153, Ian Ring Music Theory
4th mode:
Scale 453
Scale 453, Ian Ring Music Theory
5th mode:
Scale 1137
Scale 1137, Ian Ring Music Theory


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
