    phrygian dominant scale - Google Search

    From Wikipedia (PLEASE SUBMIT A CORRECTION IF THIS IS WRONG!):

    Phrygian dominant scale
    A Phrygian dominant scale is produced by raising the third scale degree of the mode:

    E Phrygian dominant
    Mode: E F G♯ A B C D E
    Major: 1 ♭2 3 4 5 ♭6 ♭7 1
    Minor: 1 ♭2 ♯3 4 5 6 7 1
    The Phrygian dominant is also known as the Spanish gypsy scale, because it resembles the scales found in flamenco music (see Flamenco mode).[citation needed] It is the fifth mode of the harmonic minor scale. Flamenco music uses the Phrygian scale together with a modified scale resembling the Arab maqām Ḥijāzī (Katz 2001) (like the Phrygian dominant but with a major sixth scale degree),[citation needed] and a bimodal configuration using both major and minor second and third scale degrees (Katz 2001).

    Oh, so Phrygian dominant is the "fifth mode of the harmonic minor scale" which I've worded as "F minor Mixolydian", not knowing how that works.
    Same scale but I guess I just learned the name for it.

    I play flamenco all the time without formal knowledge of the scale. I’ve just played it enough to improvise in those scales.

    In C it's C, Db, E, F, G, Ab, Bb
    Mixolydian (b9, b13) - an inversion of F-harmonic minor.

    Or yes, phrygian dominant. Will work like a charm on almost any V7 (dominant 7th chord) going to Im (Tonica minor).

    It sounds like an oriental F minor, but they suggest a Phrygian dominant scale:
    C Db E F G Ab Bb - Google Search
