Pretty cool little "egyptian" scale

I was messing around with a D lydian and came up with this scale as sort of a variation. It sounds pretty egyptian or middle eastern depending on how its used...(yes i know theres 2 C's right next to eachother on the scale [12-7] but if you play them in sort of a descending pattern it sounds pretty cool)



E)----------------------------------------------9-10-------
B)-------------------------------------8-10-11-------------
G)--------------------------7-8-10-11----------------------
D)-----------------8-11-12--------------------------------
A)--------8-10-12------------------------------------------
E)-10-12---------------------------------------------------

that thread specifically says Post riffs (of your own or from a band) that show different aspects of theory and how it's used, not just showing different scales. thus i'd be going against the rules of that thread to post a scale there...i didnt treat what i posted as a riff...its more of a scale

This should be in the scales thread in the guitar forum but because I'm a nice mod, I'll move it there for you.
