What scales are used for Egyptian sounding, Eastern sounding music?

I am using the Phrygian Dominant with an added major 7th.But what else is used?

normal phrygian dominant, raising the 7th is as eggmond said mixo with no third

I find the last few notes of the Harmonic Minor scale are about as Egyptian as you can get.

My favorite scale of all: Mixolydian b6 (1 2 3 4 5 b6 b7)

And then theres harmonic major (1 2 3 4 5 b6 7)

Is that in response to me?
I use the phrygian dominant with an ADDED major 7th. So you have 2 adjacent half steps.

Harmonic minor would be perfect for that like the other guys said, depending on how you use it. Listen to "Hava Nigila" when you have the chance.

EDIT: Try going to http://www.all-guitar-chords.com/ , mess around with some of the scales on there.

my boyfriend is working with the egyptian scales and he's into metal, but i dunno if that has anything to do with it. i think it's just helping him make up little riffs here and there. i tend to stay away from exotic scales for now. i need to get better at the basic ones and then go up.
