If anyone wants to experiment with a well-in-tune, 12 or 13 or even 6 note scale, they might try septimal hemithirds, with 3136/3125

as its comma. The deal is that the third (of course) takes two steps, and the 7/4 five steps. A comparable no 5s system would be no 5s

miracle, with 1029/1024 as a comma, I suppose.

Hmm, it seems to be compatible with 37-ET as well. I'm really going to have

to start playing around with 37, if I can find the time; it looks like it

has some good commas.
