In our maqam music that predicted with specific pitch any maqam fourth or fifth interval division method is called genus (The types of mode). The types of modes have been identified or named which are an important tissue used to describe the maqam. With the help of these types of modes that is have pitches same maqams separated from each other. It is possible to find the ones outside of these types in folk melodies that defined in maqam music theory. İt is seen that the types identified in folk melodies are also constructed over different curtains and used with samples. Although, it is ignored that the types included in folk melodies have been reckon without so far. When we look at the maqam music theory, folk melodies are considered as a separate field. However, each of the types can be defined in our maqam music which has their counterparts in folk melodies. İn addition to identified types in their own way of use and manifest in the works that maqam music is evaluated within the same classification. It can be said that the main difference in folk melodies stems from the fact that works are made without being involved in any theory. For this reason, it is found that, the types used in folk melodies are varied and used different pitch values even though they are close to each other. This study focuses on approximately four thousand folk songs recorded so far and saved in the archives of Turkey Radio Corporation (TRT). In these works, only four and five curtains which can be considered as types are used. Eighteen similar species are identified in the samples and the others four and five types are evaluated separately.
