I read about a Native American Flute tuned to the Arabian Scale in the key of G. I know the NAF is tuned to a pentatonic scale but am not familiar with the Arabian Scale. Does it have 5 notes? 7 notes?


I would assume that the scale you are referring to would be:

G Ab B C D Eb F# G

It is also called Gypsy Major, and in music theory, it is often called double harmonic major.

Enjoy playing with it - it's a really fun sound!

I googled and found an Arabic scale. In G , the notes would be G A B C Db Eb F G. A whole tone scale, except for the C put in extra instead of going B>C#/Db.
