Bass Lessons — A Surf-guitar/middle Eastern Scale bass tabs

  Rate this tab:








this is a scale native to the Middle East which was used by the
famous surf guitarist Dick Dale.

it is essentially a Major scale with a flatted 2nd and a flatted 6th.
a similar scale to this (it is the same scale but with a dominant
seventh) has already been posted as an 'Arabic' scale. I don't
mean to say that the 'Arabic' scale is wrong. I have never been
taught that particular scale but I am guessing it is also a commonly
used scale in the Middle East. this is just another one.

this scale is movable
