Notes: C, D, Eb, F, G, A, and Bb - Key: C - Origin: Alaska - Category: Octatonic Scales
The C Eskimo Heptatonic uses eight notes per octave. Because of this same reason it is a member of the so called Octatonic -scales that have Eight-note (or Eight-tone). On the piano keyboard, it is made up of two black keys: Eb, and Bb and five white keys: C, D, F, G, and A. This combination makes this scale - as well as the C Eskimo Hexatonic 1, C Eskimo Hexatonic 2 (Alaska : Point Hope), and C Eskimo tetratonic (Alaska : Bethel) - as great choices for composing or improvising Alaska music.
If we take a look a the key signature of the C Eskimo Heptatonic 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, D, Eb, F, G, A, and Bb.
