    Not exactly a toon tune (:D), but dropping in the intro to Sweet child of mine is always a favorite. Playing it on harmonics over a G major or E minor is particularly efficient. Have done it now and...

    Also, there's often a difference in how it's applied. Not sure if this is a "rule" of any kind, but a motif often keeps the same pitch on at least most of the notes, whereas a sequence keeps the same...

    If you strum an A minor after that, the scale will sound and function like A aeolian, or A natural minor, which isn't very spanish sounding. Try switching either/or/and the Gs with G#s and the Bs...

    Try borrowing from the dominant altered scale. Falt, or F superlocrian if you will. Or if it's easier to think Gb/F# melodic minor, call it that. It will give you loads of chromatic neighboring tones.

    It also depends on how much you're into theory stuff, or the jazzy approach, really. Chord substitutions and what you melodically can do with those make immense possibilities open. For instance. Take...

    Yup, from the pure looks of this scale, it comes down to some kind of harmonic minor. Either the F harmonic minor or the F phrygian harmonic. In "oriental" music (as this scale sounds quite oriental)...

    F#11 would be enough, I think, as you have:

    F# - the root
    E - the MINOR seventh
    A# - the major third
    B - the eleventh

    So it's an eleventh-chord with the fifth and ninth omitted.

    C - Am - F - G

    It's the exact same progression, except that the first one (chord progression 1) repeats the |F - G| and has a /B before the Am, so it's something like this:
