Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 587 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 2341 | Raga Priyadharshini | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 1609 | |||||

4th mode: Scale 713 | |||||

5th mode: Scale 601 |

This is the prime form of this scale.

The pentatonic modal family [587, 2341, 1609, 713, 601] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [731, 1627, 1739, 1753, 2413, 2861, 2917]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 587 is 2633

Scale 2633 |

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 587 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 2633

Scale 2633 |

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.
