Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 421 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 1129 | Raga Jayakauns | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 653 | Dorian Pentatonic | ||||

4th mode: Scale 1187 | Kokin-joshi | ||||

5th mode: Scale 2641 | Raga Hindol |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 331

Scale 331 | Raga Chhaya Todi |

The pentatonic modal family [421, 1129, 653, 1187, 2641] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [727, 1483, 1721, 1837, 2411, 2789, 3253]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 421 is 1201

Scale 1201 | Mixolydian Pentatonic |

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 421 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 1201

Scale 1201 | Mixolydian Pentatonic |

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.
