  • Hi GMC'ers! This time the lesson is based on Nuno Bettencourt's style. He´s one of my favorite players because of his notion of tempo and his feeling both in solos and rhythmical bases. I strongly recommend that those who don´t know him listen to all of his material.

    This lesson is simpler in regards to harmony and has the classic blues cadenza. Nuno´s style involves a lot of hammer-ons from nowhere, which he then mutes by hard-pressing the spot where the strings come out on the bridge using the side of his palm. Try this with simple pentatonic patterns and open strings.
    Rock on!!

    Tuning :
    * One Step Down
    * D - G - C - F - A - D
