Whats a Good chord progression to play over that scale? its called the E Gypsy Scale by this siteHERE And i think it sounds pretty cool on its own but i cant find good chords

Isnt that the harmonic minor scale??


No clue, but it sounds like Gypsys to me when i play it tho, so im guessing there might be a few notes that are different.

That's A harmonic minor my friend. You can play an Am chord over it.


Alright then, i dont know why the Site said it was an E Scale. i was trying to play stuff in E over it, i guess thats why it didnt work very well

Considering it starts and ends on A and definetly resolves to A, you can safely assume it's not an E scale.

If that scale is played with E as the root it is E Phrygian Dominant - E F G# A B C D - 1 b2 3 4 5 b6 b7. Making a progression around E maj, F maj and D maj (though avoid C over the D maj or play C#) works well.

Wrong. The scale extends infinitely in both directions: what he tabbed out was only a selection of notes from it. We can assume that it is indeed A harmonic minor, but I'm just reinforcing that a bunch of numbers and lines has no "resolution".

I assume E gypsy is a mode of A harmonic minor?

play it over an E7 chord. Since it's a mode I wouldn't want to play it over a progression. Personally in a band situation I would just have my bass player drone an E note and play the notes over that.

^^^First actual answer to TS. TubyBoulin asked the RIGHT question. he didn't ask what scale this is...he asked what PROGRESSION should be played. THAT is what will make this into a E Gypsy scale. sorry for the caps. whoo...just woke up so tryin' to get the brain fired up - so we got E F G# A B C D E.(1,b2,3,4,5,b6,b7)<--someone check me on that....so.......forget it brains not there. Someone help this guy make this scale into an E Gypsy Scale!

I would think rock players just play it over Epower chords or like Emin or Emin7 like SOAD freak777 said - but someone figure out the chords to constructing a tonal progression.

E F G# A B C D

I - E maj
II - F maj
iiiº - G# dim
iv - A min
vº - B dim
VI+ - C aug
vii - D min (Though I find D maj more useful here)

KryptNet, I did actually give an answer in my previous post.

so you're saying a like Emaj - B(fullDim) progrssions? Idk - kinda weird to me - but again, I'm not familiar with "gypsy" stuff. I would think I would end up constructing an A harmonic minor progression from that link - just sayin.

the bold stuff made me lost.


it really is the A Harmonic Minor scale. that's why i posted the link. A lot of those scale sites post 3 different names of scales for the same scales just so they can say they have sooo many scales on their site. idk.

Evidently, it's the fifth mode of A harmonic minor. The chords of harmonic minor are

i | iiº | bIII+ | iv | V | bVI | viiº

Harmonic minor is often mixed with natural minor, but since this "gypsy scale" resolves to a different note, I wouldn't mix it with another mode. I guess you could borrow notes from E phrygian without it sounding too strange.
#19
Alright thanks guys, ill try some of the Chords you Suggested ( A Quick Test with Am,C,G,D didnt sound to good ) Ill also take a look at that Thread Metal4All posted.

I Really do need to brush up on my theory haha

I totally missed that. My apologies. Listen to Eirien.

I was just making a quick "is this what I-V would be in Gypsy?" thing. I didn't make that clear. But Eiren had already posted a progression. Now it makes sense and with those chords it wouldn't be A harmonic minor. Tho it can be argued that it is some mode...I wouldn't call it that.
