    I've memorized this scale (as well as the byzantine scale), but I never understood if it's just a "mode" of a larger scale?

    Gipsy are from India , they are noting to do with Europe other than they landed and wandered around causing trouble

    I wrote a song called HUNGARIAN GYPSY BLUES.
    Check out my LinkedIn profile (Christopher Nowak BFA MLIS).

    Wow. . . You just opened up a whole new world for me! Thank you very much, these scales are so different from anything I've played!

    @vmars316: yep, the scale and some more text is on guitarsrecycled (cant include the full site name but this is probably sufficient, the page is 'chords and riffs'

    Hey Bert , I love that gypsy scale .
    But your , left hand , knuckles are in the way ,
    so I can't see what frets are actually being played .
    Here is the ideal angle to shoot guitar videos .
    youtube watch?v=Ve4SWACj3U8
    It really slows down the learning process .
    Do you have a website where we can see the scale/fretboard diagrams ?
    Thanks..Vernon

    Brilliant! My band has been sticking to phryggian mainly, but this one's similar but gives a more sinister feel. thanks!
