Scales of the World
The second Indian scale on our list can be used in many contexts due to the fact that it essentially has both a major and a minor third.
Try the Indian 2 scale over major and minor progressions and use care with the thirds and use them as passing tones.
This scale is one that initially may sound akward or even harsh, but it is that each scale is DIFFERENT that makes it interesting.
Listen with an open mind and realize that everything is relative.
