Dominant Phrygian, or Spanish Phrygian as it is sometimes called (just noodle up and down the first postion and you will hear why!) is the 5th mode of Harmonic Minor.

It is made of the intervals: 1,b2,3,4,5,b6,b7.

It has a very distinctive Spanish or Arab influenced sound. Once you get even slightly familiar with this scale you'll be noodling along with the Gypsy Kings before you know it.

As usual, the free guitar scale diagrams laid out below give you the scale mapped out over the entire neck, as a 4 note per string 3 octave scale and as 7, 3note per string positions.
