Yesterday my friend sent me a recording of a song. I was particularly stunned and interested in a scale (maybe not a scale, but it does sound like one.) I decided to upload the scale here: https://soundcloud.com/kris-pianist/scale. Trying my best, I cannot transcribe it. Can anybody please help me?
Yes, basically both hands play an Abmin(maj9) arpeggio, the right in 16ths while the left in 8ths. Here is the transcription fot it:
Talking about scales, from this excerpt it can be either an Ab melodic minor or an Ab harmonic minor scale.
It's not a scale, it's a five-note-arpeggio. It is an Abminmaj9 ('A flat minor major nine') arpeggio. This chord has the notes
Ab Cb Eb G Bb
And on the recording it is played like this (from high to low):
Bb Ab G Eb Cb (and continued like this through 3 lower octaves)
The last note of the arpeggio (Cb, after descending 3 octaves) resolves to Bb, which is the root of the next chord (Bb major).
