Hi guyz,

I'm a big fan of Ritchie Blackmore, realise that most of his Deep Purple, Rainbow and Blackmore's Night songs had gypsies or arabic licks,,

Need to know is there any DVD that teachers u step by step copy of a
gypsy/arabic songs?

Thnx

In Gypsy mode I usually resort to this scale shown in key of G:

G-A-Bb-C-D-Eb-Gb-G

I watched a couple of Gypsy musicians playing one time and picked this up from the guy on guitar. There was a lot of quick runs and double-picking of the notes, particularly higher up the neck. It think this scale is common to much Mediterranean music.

Isn't that just a harmonic minor scale?

How does Gypsy & Middle-Eastern compare to Celtic, as far as modes go?

Hi gennation,

Now that Indian sliding really something cool.....;)

Thnx dude
Thanks Strato, I'm hope you're getting something from them. I have a couple more lessons planned for that technique and those scales. There's an unlimited amount of application for them.
