Its crazy, though. Have you noticed if you "invert" the Major scale you'll get a weird kind of pentatonic scale?
Well, it's kinda obvious, 12 - 7 = 5, but I was tinkering around, having the idea that if you can define something with what things are in it, you can in reverse devine something by what is not in it.

Also, getting kinda philosophical here, but you could see the Major scale, or any scale for that matter, as a mode of the chromatic scale.
So in a way, everything has to fit in cohesivly somehow..

Today, I'm puzzling around on my notebook and try out 'meta-progresions' and scales.
