Watch the F# Minor Progression online guitar lesson by Tierra Negra from Magic Gypsy Chords & Rhythms

We call this progression “The Andalusian”.

You’ll be hard pressed to achieve a more mysterious flamenco sound than with this chord progression. This tricky arpeggio with the shift of emphasis transports us to an entirely different mood and makes each cadence already sound like a sophisticated little solo piece. The first three variations represent the fascinating mood of the music of the great Vicente Amigo. It’s really atmospheric like a walk in a warm summer night through Cordoba in the beautiful Andalusian region of Spain.

But there is one difference in the last bar! I shorten the arpeggio, this gives me more time to move back to the first chord. So I leave away the last (p)-(i)-(m)-(i)-(a)-(m) in the end.
