  • Hello everybody! It is a joy to work with you again and be able to pass my secrets to my friends! Today we will be playing in a style that will allow us to continue working the sensitive part of the musician. In this lesson we can appreciate the importance of melody, always remember: "The guitar is an instrument by which we communicate", therefore, bear in mind that the melody is the voice with the words that you want to express.

    All parts of this lesson are similar, the difference is minimal. The important work of this lesson is to respect the role played guitar and understand the backing track. The real work of this lesson is to acquire the musical maturity, understanding, professionalism. Note also that these virtues are presented over time and in different ways depending on each person.
    The essential elements of this lesson are: vibrato, respect for silences, slide, tone of the guitar, legatos, expression of volume when playing the string, etc.

    Tommy Emmanuel is one of my favorite guitarist of instrumental music which passes through this style among many others, I recommend it.
    Here I give you one of my favorite songs, "Walls":

    If you investigate a little about this guitarist, you will be amazed! Is one of the more virtuous I've known.

    Please believe me, watch this video:

    I hope you enjoy this lesson, folks!


    In this lesson I use a sound respecting the style:
    Sound of clean solo same of booster, OD-1 with little gain (crunch sound), etc, with a cool reverb and a little delay.

    F – G – Am – Dm – Em –
