Maybe a little explanation of what the Mahur scale is?
Dear Andy, I'm afraid with a few sentences, the so-called Dastgahe Mahur
is not explained. It is the Persian music
system within there are the dastgah
s that are part of the Radif
In any case, each of the seven dastgah is assigned a certain scale, in the case of the mahur
it is the major scale, in addition to smaller tone steps, where you must use coron
as a sign. Within Mahur, there are many small units that also have all their characteristic scales within the main scale, called gusheha.
Mahur has over 4000 years of roots.
Of course you can not play these mini-steps of Persian music on the guitar.
Please think of the Indian Raga system, which can only be explained very extensively, otherwise it is incomprehensible.
In any case, a Dastgah in the special performance of each artist is very individual and free and is extreme in variety.
Mahur for example has over 4000 years of roots.
Have a good day!
Best regards, Reza
