Trawling the internet looking at nice guitars i found this clip of Dave Weiner playing an Ibanez XPT. I don't know what scale he plays the 'CLEAN' snipit in, but it sounds sort of egyptian to me. if anyone knows this scale that is being played or any scales that have a similar egyptian kind of sound, could they let me know!

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

Phrygian Dominant. It is often the case with stereotypical Egyptian and Arabian music (which does not actually use the same musical system at all).

That and Diminished scales. If you really want the "Egyptian sound," use Phyrgian Dominant but with a raised 7th, which is the fifth mode of a Harmonic Minor scale with an augmented 4th, a.k.a. Hungarian Minor.

Cheers!

I can look up the Phyrgian Dominant scale, i suppose! but the raised 5ths and stuff is confusing?

Help? :S
