  • Greetings from Granada (Andalucia, Spain)!

    This is an easy exercise to start playing with a bottleneck (slide). I play an ascending scale on the second string, and after that I descend by playing on the first string. I'm changing the scale notes depending of the chord in the backing over which I'm playing. I also play notes from the chromatic scale to move from one chord to another. Hope you'll enjoy this one!
