Is this a scale?

    While noodling today I found some notes that sound tonally "correct" together. Any idea what it is? Sounds scary.

    Dm pentatonic scale with blue note b5

    One of the most common scales used in Rock, Blues...

    it's not the entire scale, but a sort of collections of notes from the A harmonic minor scale. specifically the 4th, 6th, #7th, 8th, 3rd/10th, and 4th/11th notes in the scale.

    scale to 11th degree:
    G --------------------------4--5--7-
    D --------------------6--7----------
    A -----------5--7--8----------------
    E --5--7--8-------------------------

    please, anyone with more music theory skill than me, feel free to correct my mistakes :ninja:

    Fmin6 Pentatonic starting on D.

    You can play that scale over: F min6/9, Dmin7(b5), Bb13, G11(b9), Ab Maj13(#11).

    If you add the A, then D minor Blues like it was suggested before
