Scales of the Ironborn

The Ironborn scales appear to be somewhat related to First Men scales (if not even the same scales) but upon closer examination one can see the real connection between them. Laid out below are the four scales in current use by the Ironborn in their Storm Shanties. For each scale the first row matches a scale of First Men origin from which the first three notes are extracted to put together a nine-note scale that features non-octave equivalence, a unique feature in all of Westeros.
