Starting from the left side of the hydraulophone Each jet corresponds to a note on the musical scale starting at ``A'', and moving through the musical alphabet, where each jet can be labeled as ``A, B, C, D, E, F, G, a, b, c, d, etc.''.
As people run their hands over the jets, a natural minor scale is played on the whole notes from ``A'' to ``a'' leading to melodies such as ``The Ants Go Marching'' or ``Summertime''. Starting on the jet ``C'' gives us the major scale from ``C'' to ``c'', and leads to songs like ``The Wheels on the Bus Go 'Round and 'Round''. Starting on jet ``D'' gives us the Dorian mode in which many traditional folk songs such as ``What Shall We Do with the Drunken Sailor'' are played. Starting with jet ``E'' gives us the Phrygian mode (whole note jets ``E'' to ``e'') of flamenco music.
