  • Greetings from Granada (Andalucia, Spain)!

    In this lesson we have a 4/4 beat with triplets. We have a folk taste using the electric guitar which sounds like a soundtrack film score. I use hybrid picking as usual in my style and octaves intervals for skipping strings. Some fragments sound like Eric Johnson, one of my favorites guitarists.
