Black Walnut – Hijaz Flute – Key of G
This Hitzaz scale is commonly used in Greek and Arabic music; it is the scale that the Greek stringed instrument, the Bouzouki, is tuned to (it is also the scale that Flamenco is usually played in, sometimes called the ‘Spanish Gypsy scale’, though there are several of these!). A similar sounding scale is the Hitzazkiar scale found on Middle Eastern lip and reed flutes like the Turkish Ney. In fact, the naming of these scales seems very confused; for some, the Hitzaz scale is called the Hijaz, for others the Hijaz is a shortened form of the HijazKiar scale, and in other texts the Hijaz is the HitzazKiar.
The notes for this G scale are: G Ab B C D Eb F# G
