THE Naghmeh Dashti
This naghmeh ,clearly the most important of the auxiliary dastgah-ha
beloning to shur,is also more closely related to folk music than any
other dastgah or nagmeh of art music. Many folk melodies are included
among the gusheh of Dashti: Gilaki, Dashtestani, Bayat kord and Chupani
to name a few. Moreover ,it is generally felt that a large percentage
of the folk music has the same feeling as Dashti and may even have a
similar scale and melodic shape. In fact, Barkechli stete that Dashti
is the basis of musical folkore. Theorist usually write the shur scale
for Dashti with the third degree as ist and the fifth as shahed.
Transponed to C,the Dashti scale is the same as that of Bayat tork:
C D E F G A Bp C. For daramad of Dashti there is unusaual consensus
in the sources. All transposed versions start on C,the ist,and rise
to stress the shahed E. Rast kuk for Dashti is F for tar and settar
B-flat for santur,and C for kamanchy.
