A middle eastern influenced legato guitar lick

I've always loved music from the middle east. The droning E string in this lick is inspired by the sounds of middle eastern stringed instruments. I haven't really thought of this piece in terms of scales but its natural notes with the exception of the G#. To my ears is has a part harmonic minor part phrygian mode feel. I'll let the more theoretical players argue that out.
