  • Hi GMC'ers! This time I have something special for you: Robert Fripp & The League of Crafty Guitarrist. This group of guitar players leaded by Fripp (the leader of King Crimson) have an amazing progressive sound made of melodic loops (most of the time) and some haunted soundings in their harmony.
    Some of the records that I've listened to make this lesson are:

    -The League of Crafty Guitarists Live!
    -Show of Hands
    -Intergalactic Boogie Express: Live in Europe

    This lesson is pretty simple, it works on the concept of layering. I play one “loop” and then I'll add another and I keep going until we have 7 layers. I've prepared this lesson in order that you can play it with a sample pedal or any device that records and then you can add a loop to it. That would be a nice way to play it on your own.

    The tuning for this lesson is the one that Fripp calls “The new standard tuning”, it's all in fifths with the exception between the 2nd and 1st string that are a minor 3rd apart:

    6th- C
    5th- G
    4th- D
    3rd- A
    2nd- E
    1st- G

    I hope you enjoy the lesson! :)
