The Extended Scale of the Anasazi Flute
by Scot August

In our last two articles about the Anasazi flute we looked at the basic major pentatonic and then the minor pentatonic scales respectively. If you'll recall we also discovered that the major pentatonic is Anhemitonic pentatonic scale, so called because the scale doesn't have any half steps, like the Native American flute scale, and that the minor scale is Hemitonic pentatonic scale because it has some half steps. To review this check out the last article: The Minor Scale of the Anasazi flute.

In this section we're going to look at the Extended scale found in the Anasazi flute's lower octave. By extended I mean all the playable notes. This scale has nine notes that are determined by the physical construction of the Anasazi flute itself. It is not presented here as a scale that you would find practical to play or even pleasing to listen to, but rather as a reference of all the notes available in the lower octave of the Anasazi flute; how they are fingered and their intervalic relationship to the root note.
