Just to clear up a few things:

Natural or pure minor (aeolian mode) = 1-2-b3-4-5-b6-b7
Harmonic minor = 1-2-b3-4-5-b6-7
Melodic minor = 1-2-b3-4-5-6-7
Hungarian minor = 1-2-b3-#4-5-b6-7
Phrygian dominant = 1-b2-3-4-5-b6-b7 (5th mode Harmonic minor)
Double Harmonic - 1-b2-3-4-5-b6-7 (= 5th mode Hungarian minor = scale used in Misirlou)
Code:
Misirlou scale - Dick Dale just runs up the 6th string: ------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------- 0-1-4-5-7-8-11-(12)----------------------- = E double harmonic, or A Hungarian minor

Dorian #4 = 1-2-b3-#4-5-6-b7 (4th mode harmonic minor)
Altered scale = 1-b2-b3-b4-b5-b6-b7 (7th mode melodic minor)
