Miyako-Bushi Extended Scale
This pentatonic (five-note) scale is another mode of the Hirajoshi Extended scale. The highest note is very high (for a Native American flute) into the second register — the eleventh. It is typically reachable only on extended-range Native American flutes designed for play into the second register.
However, you can use this scale without that top note for some nice melodies.
