Gypsy is the name of the scale, not the people. The people are the Roma.
A short piece I did up last night and finalized this morning.

Cool tune, dude!
I tried doing something with the gypsy scale a couple months ago for some folk flavor, but my harmony knowledge is too underdeveloped to improvise with non-diatonic stuff. How do you go about it?

1 - I have been working through Tchaikovsky's "Guide to the Practical Study of Harmony" in order to get better at understanding harmony.
2 - I just built up some minor harmonies and let the scale modify the resulting notes with sharps/flats as it would if I just blindly played the notes. xD The underlying harmony is so straightforward that it isn't hard for it to accept the modifications and still sound cool.

LOL. that's exactly the book I have lying here in my music folder for when I quit being a lazy bum.
The thing that holds me back is the staff... I need to get a keyboard to have some non-boring way of practicing my reading. Deciphering note per note then transcribing to a piano roll consumes too much time.
Thanks for the info, I'm saving this piece for later analysis. (:

I can send the orig. .myr file, or a .mid file, if those would help you.
