Alternate Versions of 6

These sentences use two different versions of the 6th scale degree in their melodies, usually flat in one phrase and natural in another, although some also use the 1/2 flat, indicating the potential of jins Bayati on the 5th Scale degree. But these melodies don't really tonicize 5; it is more of a point of emphasis. These sentences not modulating among different ajnas on 5 (Nahawand, Hijaz, Bayati), just playing with different intervals between 5 and 6 as a particular melody type and vocabulary - still within the overall feeling of Jins Hijaz on 1, leaning upward.

Alternate versions of 6: flat, half-flat, raised
