  • Greetings from Granada (Andalucia, Spain)!

    Before starting to play this lesson, tune the pitch of the sixth string down to D. I composed this song to show the slap & hybrid picking technique using rhythmic riffs. The style of music is close to the country and the 6/8 beat gives a taste of folk.
