For clean 17 edo guitar


For two 17 edo guitars in 17 edo’s version of the whole tone scale. The whole tone scale in 17 equal (edo) is unusual in that being an odd-numbered tuning it takes 3 octaves before the scale comes to its starting point. Each step is three steps of the 17 equal 70.59 cent small step – a total of 211.76 cents. I try to keep myself constrained to the scale but do stray at times. A longer version with percussion is here.
