Notes: C, Db, F, G, and Ab - Key: C - Origin: Japanese - Category: Hexatonic Scales
The C Akebono II uses six notes per octave. Because of this same reason it is a member of the so called Hexatonic -scales that have Six-note (or Six-tone). On the piano keyboard, it is made up of two black keys: Db, and Ab and three white keys: C, F, and G. This combination makes this scale - as well as the C Akebono I, C Banshikicho, and C Han-Iwato - as great choices for composing or improvising Japanese music.
If we take a look a the key signature of the C Akebono II Scale we can find it has two flats and no sharps. Therefore, on sheet music you will find two accidentals on the score. The notes of this scale are: C, Db, F, G, and Ab.
