Yes, deviating from those established places is where the spark of originality and creativity is kindled - assuming one knows the rules well enough to break them, and is playing with people at the same level. Otherwise, the head-turning will be for the wrong reasons.For example, if you whipped out a Hijaz scale to someone who had never heard of it - and had no particular desire to play in it - the results wouldn't be so grand. With the right people, though, you could take it farther and make some mindblowing music.
