In this lesson you will learn a theme based on the gypsy minor scale. The gypsy minor scale is prominently used in Romani (gypsy) music. Exotic guitar scales like this one are a good way to bring new sounds into your playing.
The gypsy minor scale (aka Hungarian minor scale or double harmonic minor scale) is the same as an harmonic minor scale, but with a raised 4:
|C Gypsy Minor Scale||C||D||Eb||F#||G||Ab||B|
The following diagrams show you how the scale looks on the fretboard (in 2 positions). Get these 2 positions in your fingers before you go on to the theme.
