  • Hi Guys,

    Welcome to my lesson No. 52
    This lesson is about learning to think as a singer and NOT necessarily think as a guitar player. This can definitely help you to create more melodic emotional phrases.

    The A Part is more about small rhythmic phrases with some rest in between them.
    The B Part is the opposite, it has more longer sustained notes and wide intervalls.
    And the C Part has this big epic feel can could'nt be more dramatic.

    You also will find out in this lesson how important is to creation a dramaturgy in your solo. this will catche the listener a lot more!

    Here are the parts of this song:

    A Part 0:00-0:23
    ||: Dm | % | C/Bb | Bb :||

    B Part 0:24-0:43
    ||: Dm | % | C/Bb | Bb :||

    C Part 0:44-1:09
    | Em7#5 | Dm7#5 | F/C | C C/Bb |
    | Am7 | Dm | F Gm F/A Bb| Bb | Bb |

    Have fun! ;-)
