Japanese Taishikicho Scale
You don't have to play traditional Japanese music on a shamisen to appreciate this fun scale. The Japanese Taishikicho scale is an exotic nine note scale from Japan. It can be thought of as having all the same intervals that a Major scale has but also includes both an added flat 5th and flat 7th intervals.
