Pentatonic scales

Probably the Pygmy scale is one of the most loved and loved handpan scales, its particular introspective and meditative voice allows you to play and explore freely thanks to its correspondence of notes, ideal for singing.

Encontramos la escala Pygmy en voz baja y alta, para estas dos en Ding F3 tendríamos las siguientes notas:

F High Voice Pygmy

(F) / Bb C Db F Ab Bb C Db

F Low Voice Pygmy

(F) / G Ab C Eb F G Ab C

sí uniéramos estas dos trabajarían muy bien, formando.

F Kurd 13: (F) / G Ab Bb C Db Eb F G Ab Bb C Db

Curiosamente al fusionar se origina una típica escala menor también llamada F Kurd.

La conclusión es que al partir de escalas de handpan menores y al generarse formas 8+1 pentatónicas para un mismo Ding se generan intervalos de amplio rango (especialmente aumentados) aún conservando el carácter de escala F Kurd 13 inicial, ello nos abriría con predominancia de notas bajas (octava 3) Low Pygmy, y con notable rango alto High Pygmy.

Así mismo podrían construirse otras escalas partiendo de la F kurd inicial, por ejemplo: F Medium Voice Pygmy 8+1: (F) / Ab Bb C Eb F Ab Bb C
