What scale is this?
 
I was jamming on a Chris Poland Megadeth solo earlier and I came up with a scale similar to what he was using:


----------------------------------------------15-16-17----|
|-------------------------------------13-14-16-------------|
|----------------------------12-13-14----------------------|
|-------------------11-13-14-------------------------------|
|----------11-12-15----------------------------------------|
|-11-12-15-------------------------------------------------|


Does this actually resemble anything that has a name to it?

Follows in accordance with the Hungarian minor scale exactly.

T - 2M - 3m - 5- - 5 - 6m - 7M

No shit! How did you find that out??

Guitar Pro has a scale finder in it.

I could be wrong, but to me that doesnt follow the Hungarian minor scale I know at all.

Looking at the tab you presented gives us the notes:

D# E G G# A C C# which follows a 1-2b-3-4-b5-6-b7 pattern from start to finish

The hungarian minor scale is 1-2-3b-4#-5-b6-7 as far as I know. Now, note that what davie and I are calling the hungarian minor is the exact same, I am not arguing that.

What I am saying is that the hungarian minor does not match up with the notes in the tab you listed for us. Instead, I recognized this as one of the 2 popular forms of the Oriental scale. correct me someone if I am wrong though.

All I know is that Chris "the shit" Poland needs to be kicked in the nads for some of the insanity he wrote on Peace Sales. Count Dave in to lol. Over 20 years later and parts of that album are still kicking my ass ;)

That's because it's not D# Hungarian minor, it's actually based out of C# Hungarian minor. This passage is just starting on the next scale degree D#, which you are correct makes out the Oriental Scale. So in essence, the Oriental Scale is the 7th mode of the relative major scale to the Hungarian minor scale (or 2nd mode of the Hungarian minor, however you wanna look at it), which, the closest scale I could find would be the Hungarian major scale with a b6th and b7th scale degree. Odd...

haha, yea i guess once you get outside of the modes of major, harmonic minor, and melodic minor its really grasping at straws as far as what people call scales.

wasnt trying to say you were wrong or anything, I just happened to see it went along with what I called the orientals cale. :)
