Hi guys. What scale/s would you use to improvise over Havana Gila? Although not quite geographically correct I would like to get a kind of Balkan feel. Like Ivo Papasov's clarinet playing if you have heard him. Any advice much appreciated.
 
This is probably of no use but here goes anyway. The simple version I have is in the Key of F (or D minor (still haven't worked out how you tell)) and the chords it has are C7 , Fm and Bbm. As for improve I'm still working on how to tell which is best (bit difficult when I can only play 5 so far)
 
Havana Gila? A Cuban rabbi smoking cigars and playing congas?

If Curefan's chords are correct, F harmonic minor seems to be the relevant scale
 
It was and a good time was had by all (well the wife and the cat anyway)? Tips werent plentiful apart from don't give up the day job, which is a bit worrying as I don't have one.

Most tunes end on the tonic. So if it ends on an F, you're there. Aldevis suggestion of F harmnic minor sounds rught, but there's also a Klezmer scale.
