  • Ciao GMC'ers! This time I've composed an Tarantella. I named it Tarantella Mon Gerbino after the Mountain in Palermo Sicily, Mon Gerbino. I has the same name as myself therefor I dedicated this composition to it.

    What is a Tarantella? Many of you may know that a Tarantella is a folk dance very commonly found in the region of Sicily (South Italy), however you many know where the name came from. Well, the legend say's that if someone has been bitten by a spider (tarantula) the person must dance like a madman in order to get venom out from his body. Tarantella literally means the dance of the Tarantula.

    The lesson is in 6/8, it has mostly eighth triplets and a few sixteenth triplets. I composed the lesson in the key of D minor, but you will find some alterations of the scale here and there. It's played with alternate picking with some sweeps to spice up this tarantella.

    130 bpm

    Scales:
    D minor

    Tuning:
    * Down 1/2 Step
