Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 803 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:
Scale 2449
Scale 2449, Ian Ring Music Theory
3rd mode:
Scale 409
Scale 409, Ian Ring Music Theory
4th mode:
Scale 563
Scale 563, Ian Ring Music Theory
5th mode:

The pentatonic modal family [803, 2449, 409, 563, 2329] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [823, 883, 1843, 2459, 2489, 2969, 3277]


The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 803 is 2201
