  • Greetings from Granada (Andalucia, Spain)!

    In this soul composition I propose to leave the pick and play only with your fingers. At first I use the hit of my hand to make the groove. In another musical style, one of the great guitarists who played with the fingers is Mark Knopfler.

    Music Style:
    Blues / Soul

    Tonality & Scales:
    G Pentatonic minor (b5)

    Techniques:
    Finger picking, double stop, bending

    Sound:
    I used a guitar LSL T-Bone vintage 50's ("Palomita") with a little of overdrive and delay.

    Tuning:
    Standard tuning: E,A,D,G,B,E

    Tempo:
    85bpm (Slow parts at 50 bpm)

    G BLUES MINOR SCALE
