  • Variation to a Hungarian folk song – in Bb minor

    This little piece has been recorded for a friend of mine, Leander Köteles's new song. The main melody is a classic Hungarian folk song (Madárka-madárka) with a little variation at the end (which is half improvised-half written). I played this tune on a seven string but it can be played on a 6 string easily (I tabbed both).

    It is important to know that we recorded everything live (piano and guitar at the same time), and we did not use the metronome for the „better vibe”. I would suggest You to practise everything separately first and than try to play along with the backing tracks. Try to observe the little nuances/details like the pickup switching at the end of the arpeggio and the phrases etc.

    I hope You’ll have fun with it!

    6 or 7 string arpeggios – sweeps
    Pinch harmonics
    Chromatic scales
    B minor arpeggio
    Pickup switching
