"The Hungarian gypsy minor scale can be seen as a harmonic minor scale with a #4
(or b5). Guitar players such as Jimmy and Stochello Rosenberg and Bireli Lagrene
commonly use this scale in jazz gypsy music".

Plectrum Pyrotechnics.
"The polytonal and bi-tonal licks I’m going to show you are
directly inspired by listening to pianists such as Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock, as well
as saxophone players like Michael Brecker and Joe Henderson”
Instructor Jean-Marc many guitar approaches, refined
dozens of cool ways to use pentatonics. One thing he likes
his students to explore is stringskipping lines such as Ex.
12. And, as shown in
Ex. 13, Belkadi often handles string skips the smart
convenient, “hybrid” way—by plucking the higher string
with the picking hand’s middle finger. Notice that this last
example has a hemiolic three-against-four
pick/hammer/pluck downbeats), and it will retain its jagged
unpredictable sound.

Sensei to the Stars:
You don’t have to be an amateur guitarist to need guitar lessons. Even
the pros like a good schoolin’ now and again. And if you’re a professional
guitarist, singer, or actor in the Los Angeles area who’s fishing around
for a guitar teacher, it probably won’t be long before someone refers you
to Jean-Marc Belkadi. Like his mentor, the late, great guitar genius Ted
Greene, Belkadi is quickly emerging as one of the most in-demand and
respected guitar instructors ....
Guitar Player Magazine, Jude Gold
The concept of The Composite Blues
Scale for Electric Guitar
is to show the
with the composite blues scale over the
with the composite blues dominant, major,
minor 7th and Minor 7th b5 chords. This
is a necessary book  to improve the
chromaticism and Blues vocabulary by
understanding the connection between
the chromaticism and the blues scale in
different music styles: Jazz, Rock, Funk,
Fusion, Pop & Latin. The eBook is

GP’s favorite prodigal son Jude Gold delivered this knowledge. “The easiest way to add zip to an
ascending three-notes-per-string scale is to pick only the first note on each string and hammer the
two that follow. The problem with this highly legato strategy, though, is that it results in a
predictable and repetitive sound. Southern California guitar sensei J
ean Marc Belkadi has
noticed a clever way to liven things up without slowing you down: Play every third picked note as
the first note in an upward sweep of the pick that drops you back down three strings. When you
finally reach the highest string (bar 2, middle of beat two), descend back down the scale as shown”
