Shur mugham

Still reviewing mughams. This is the first part of Şur - bardəşt.

I would really like someone to explain how this mugham works. It seems to be playing around two note variations - F natural and F sharp (Fa bekar and Fa diyaz) and B and B flat (Si and Si bemol). And obviously it has some parts that are parts in other mughams and these follow the same basic patterns but start from different notes.

But other than that, what the heck is going on? Can someone please explain it to me?

Here goes. I will try to post the rest soon.
