Earlier, I described the E Phrygian Dominant scale as being a slight variant of the E Phrygian scale. The E Phrygian scale is the same as the C Major scale, but starts and ends on E rather than C. The E Phrygian Dominant (also called the Spanish Gypsy scale) raises the 3rd note of the scale 1/2 step. So instead of E F G A B C D E, you play E F G# A B C D E.
Here's an example of a song that uses this scale. It is a section of Waves on the Danube by Losif Ivanovici that was reworked into a song sung by Al Jolson and called The Anniversary Song. It's pretty easy and here's how to play it.

Very Nice Uzi.
I have lost so much of my music theory. It is nice to read your notes and get some refreshment and actually understand it a bit. I remember taking scales and changing them in class years back.. Descending Melodic minor.. etc.
Thanks for posting. Thanks for the lovely song and music also.
Vibrato Desperato.... Desperately seeking vibrato
I haven't been playing with modes much since I started the Viddle. Been so concerned about the Major\Minor thing and intonation. This post just inspired me to start venturing past that > thanks Uzi
