Watch the Electric Gypsy Progression online guitar lesson by Andy Timmons from Electric Expression
In this first performance study I'm basically going to be playing over the changes of Electric Gypsy. D major, A major, B minor, G major, and that just keeps repeating. When I play it live that loops ad infinitum, and I get to have some fun melodically over it. In this example, I'm going to start off by playing some open harmonic melodic ideas, which can be very effective and it's a nice chimey tone. And then like we talked about earlier, the tapped harmonics, I play some melodic ideas with that. And then just some basic single note soloing, and I actually replicate some phrases from the original recording of Electric Gypsy on the Ear X-tacy CD. So here you go. Let's dig in.
