Although this sounds good in theory, there will be dissonance and the pattern doesn't lend itself to repetitions and up and down motion. At least the way I did it.

I tend to practice these types of rhythms with some LH ostinato pattern instead of scales. But that's just me.





In the polyrhythm scales, sure there will be dissonance, but that's ok. The 2:3 rhythm works in scales if the hand doing the 3 goes 3 octaves up and down, and the other hand goes two octaves up and down. I found it took a few days for my brain to wrap around this new way of doing scales.

Maybe because I'm a jazz guy, I don't like training my ears to learn nonsensical patterns. I'd like to hear real music and train my ears to recognize it.

So if I were intent on doing this with 2:3, maybe start at D for a D dorian run.

(meaning play the C scale starting at D instead of C...for those unfamiliar with modes).
