  • Hi Guys,

    Welcome to my lesson No. 48

    This lesson is for beginner and perfectly demonstrates how easy it is to play nice groovy rhythms with sus chords and adding a beautiful sweet melody on top of it.

    The catchy melody maybe reminds on Joe Satriani, Jan Cyrca or Gary Moore/Peter Green.


    We have the typical song structure AABA

    A Part 0:00-0:32
    ||: Esus2 C#sus | % | % | Asus2 A :||

    A Part 0:33-0:59
    ||: Esus2 C#sus | % | % | A :||

    B Part 1:00-1:26
    | C#m | B | Fm | B/A A |
    | C#m | B | A | B Bsus4 |


    A Part 1:27-2:00
    | Esus2 C#m | % | % | A#4 A |
    | Esus2 C#m | % | % | Asus2 |
    | E | E |
    Have fun! ;-)

    Final words

    I tried to transcribe as close as possible. Specially in the Guitar Pro 5 you'll find all this little extras!

    Cheers - Guido
