The C Spanish Mode 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 four black keys: Db, Eb, Ab, and Bb and three white keys: C, F, and G. This combination makes this scale - as well as the C Dorico Flamenco, C Moorish Phrygian, and C Spanish Gypsy - as great choices for composing or improvising Spanish music.
If we take a look a the key signature of the C Spanish Mode Scale we can find it has four flats and no sharps. Therefore, on sheet music you will find four accidentals on the score. The notes of this scale are: C, Db, Eb, F, G, Ab, and Bb.
