Watch the Gypsy Eggs online guitar lesson by Freekbass from 50 Freekbass Licks You MUST Know

This is a line from my new album. I have always really dug the sound of the minor gypsy scale.

With this lick I am starting on the E on the 7th fret of the the A string. It is kind of a "call and answer" type line using the gypsy scale. Each go around it starts with the same root 1/2 step groove, the same each time (the A line). With the B line that changes with each pass. The first time being an alternate melody, 2nd time being a plucking of octaves, the third being a hammer-triplet, and then ending on a going down the neck. All of the lines using the E minor gypsy scale.
